Whatever you do, be different. That was the advice my mother gave me and I can't think of better advice for an entrepreneur. It you're different, you will stand out.

BTEC courses offer a flexible range of qualifications that can be studied alongside other level 3 qualifications such as A levels or other BTEC Nationals as part of a larger programme of study, or as the main focus of study.

They are designed for post-16 level 3 learners wishing to go on to further or higher level study of the sector or directly to employment.

All sizes attract UCAS points and are widely recognised by universities and employers.
