I used to work for Edexcel/Pearson in Egypt and helped education institutes to introduce BTEC and other Pearson applied learning courses to their learners. Here’s 1 example of how a school in Egypt is implementing it as an alternative to A levels and IB diploma to those who are non academic oriented. There are other examples in Dubai that are introducing it as part of the academic portfolio for the students to increase their chances at higher education choices.
I work independently now with UK and Finnish education and digital marketing providers. However, I am a great believer in BTEC pathway for non academic oriented students
