Vocational qualifications like BTECs are work-related courses, giving you the skills and knowledge needed for a particular career or job role. These courses are more practical than theory-based A-Levels, but that doesn’t mean they’re an easier option.
With BTECs, you’ll gain hands-on experience and you’ll be trained to the high standard that employers expect, and as joint top-performing college for vocational qualifications in Wales, we have a wide selection of courses for you to explore.
So, if you think a vocational qualification is more suited to your learning style than an academic course, you’ll find the course for you at Coleg Gwent. Hear what some of our learners have to say:
