BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Business (QCF)
The 60-credit BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma extends the specialist work-related focus of the BTEC Level 3 Certiﬁcate and covers the key knowledge and practical skills required in the appropriate vocational sector. It is broadly equivalent to one GCE A Level. If you are 19-23 years old and have not studied a Level 3 qualification previously, you can access this course for FREE (subject to funding eligibility).
The BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma offers an engaging learning experience. These learners may wish to extend their programme through the study of a general qualiﬁcation such as GCE AS Levels, additional specialist learning (eg through another BTEC qualiﬁcation) or a complementary NVQ. These learning programmes can be developed to allow learners to study related and complementary qualiﬁcations without duplication of content.
For adult learners, the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma can extend their experience of work in a particular sector. It may also be a suitable qualiﬁcation for those wishing to change career or move into a particular area of employment following a career break.
- Qualiﬁcation credit value: a minimum of 60 credits.
- A maximum of 5 optional credits can come from other level 3 BTEC units to meet local needs
