UAE schools offering BTEC

While limited in terms of provision in the UAE, in the UK it is chosen over 1 million learners every year according to Pearson. The BTEC offers a range of professional qualifications for anyone taking their first steps into the world of work, progressing through their careers, or planning to enter university.

Note that although these schools are accredited to be able to offer BTEC, subject provision is likely to be extremely limited. As in all cases, contact the school to take your research further.
