Developing an effective Careers IAG Programme for level 3 BTEC learners

Linking London Higher Education Collaborative Conference: Supporting Learner’s Progress to HE

context
Context
  • The number of students progressing to HE from London colleges with a BTEC qualification has doubled in 5 years:
    • 2005-06: 5565 (14.6% of cohort)
    • 2009-10: 10645 (23.6% of cohort)
  • BTECs are now the second most widely used qualification for entry to HE in UK
    • Some in combination with A-level
context1
Context

BTEC are now the single biggest cohort of L3 progressors to HE from London colleges:

BTEC (full-time): 23.6%

NVQ: 19.6%

Other vocational/PT: 19.5%

A-level/IB: 16.3%

Access: 9.6%

AS Level: 8.5%

Other vocational/FT: 2.9%

(on basis of main level 3 qualification)

In 2012 there were 200,000 BTEC learners and approximately half applied for HE through UCAS. This compares to approximately 75% of UK domiciled students studying A levels who apply to HE.

  • 23% of UK 18 year olds were accepted for entry in 2012 holding A levels
  • The second most widely held qualification is BTECs: 4.7% of UK 18 year olds were accepted for entry in 2012 holding BTECs
  • The entry rate for those holding BTECs alone (or in combination with other non-A level qualifications) exceeds the entry rate for those holding BTECs in combination with A levels.
  • The entry rates of both groups are growing (whilst the A level entry rate is declining)
  • The BTEC + A level entry rate is growing the fastest of all three. This is likely to be driven by increasing numbers of students taking A level and BTEC combinations.

Feedback from Group Discussion. Key points raised:

  • Careers input in first year
  • BTEC achievement vs prep for HE
  • Skills development and embedding before progression – in collaboration with HEIs
  • Extended writing / independent research / examinations
  • Referencing – online submission through Turnitin
  • BTEC conference for students
  • Peers – as successful case studies / role models
