BTec results: Vocational qualifications 'not an easy option'


A BTec student who has been offered a place at university said practical qualifications can be more appropriate than academic ones such as A-levels.

Tasnim Bhuiyan, 21, from Cardiff is one of thousands of students in Wales getting their final results today.

He said the practical nature of the BTec qualification helped him get a place studying computer security at the University of South Wales.

It comes as employers’ body CBI Wales has said parents and teachers should put a greater focus on vocational qualifications.

Keep Safe

Wash your hands frequently Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands. Maintain social distancing Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
