One of the three major awarding bodies in UK, it is a vital and innovative force in education and training. Edexcel was formed in 1996 by the merger of two of the leading examination and assessment boards in the UK: the Business and Technology Council (BTEC) which offered widely recognised vocational qualifications and, the University of London Examinations and Assessment Council (ULEAC).


This amalgamation made Edexcel the first awarding body for both academic and vocational qualifications. They offer qualifications in a vast range of subjects that offer breadth and depth of knowledge and which are welcomed by universities and employers alike.


Each of their qualifications has been developed in consultation with the UK Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, and will certify you for success in the modern and changing world.



Edexcel is part of Pearson, the world’s leading learning company which has an educational heritage rooted in names like Longman, Heinemann and Prentice Hall.



Edexcel is the UK’s largest awarding organisation, offering academic and vocational qualifications and testing to schools, colleges, employers and other places of learning in the UK and internationally.



Edexcel vocational qualifications include NVQ and BTEC from entry level to Higher National Diplomas. BTECs are recognised in more than 80 countries worldwide, and in 2009/10 over 1.1 million learners were registered onto a BTEC.


BTEC originally stood for the Business & Technology (formally Technician) Education Council, but as of 1996, when it merged with the University of London Examinations & Assessment Council (ULEAC) to become Edexcel, the initials 'BTEC' have remained a brand name for a range of respected vocational qualifications - e.g. BTEC Higher National.



People around the world, look towards BTEC from Edexcel international, when considering vocational qualifications.


Whether you want to leave college with a certified record of achievement or go on to study at university or aim for a higher position in your career, BTEC vocational qualifications will equip you with the skills you need to succeed in the ever changing work environment.
