Cosmopolitan Introduces New Courses For Level 1

We’ve designed the new BTEC Level 1 Introductory qualifications for post-16 learners to develop skills rather than specific sector knowledge. The ‘softer’ skills your learners will develop help prepare them for further study or employment. It’s all about showcasing what they can do, rather than just displaying their knowledge.


We decided to review the BTEC offer in light of education policy over a year ago and consider the purpose, content and progression of level 1. We needed to relate our thinking to current national policies but above all the needs of our learners. Based on customer research, we decided that level 1 should have a pre-employment focus and that it should be focussed on skills to progress to level 2. It is not subject to performance measures with regards to recognition or funding so decided that any changes we make, must focus on these key areas.
