Pearson BTECs are Vocational Skill Qualification programs, developed and validated in partnership with industry, universities and professional bodies, offering a diverse range of qualifications enabling learners a pathway to UK universities.

The qualifications have seen tremendous success globally, reaching over 1.05 million learners in more than 50 countries. 90% of BTEC students are likely to be employed after graduating. 

“Our partnership with Hyderabad School of Business will strengthen our efforts in providing an immersive learning experience to students, equipping them with the confidence and expertise to thrive in the global workplace. Together, we aim to invest in the future of India's workforce, empowering individuals to achieve their full potential and contribute meaningfully to the nation's economic growth.” said, Jane Baker, Vice President, Pearson Workforce Skills.
