BTEC (Edexcel) is an abbreviation of the Business and Technology Education Council. They are qualifications that are associated with actual jobs and are related to a working environment. In 1996, University of London Examinations & Assessment Council (ULEAC) and BTEC merged to form Edexcel which now offer BTECs.

They are a helpful qualification if you want a mix of going out into the workplace whilst at the same time, spending some time at college, and gaining a qualification.

BTECs have been around for 25 years and their reputation is second to none. They're recognised by schools, colleges, universities, employers and professional bodies across the UK and in over 100 countries worldwide.

They offer natural progression along a vocational path, from and to academic qualifications and university.

Many industry and professional bodies offer exemptions to successful BTEC students for their own accredited qualifications.


The INTERNATIONAL THERAPY EXAMINATION COUNCIL (ITEC) is an awarding body offering vocational qualifications in Complementary Therapy and Bodywork. ITEC is recognised and regulated by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), and the Department of Education and Employment. ITEC is an independent examining body that offers impartiality and objectivity in its examinations.

ITEC is recognised by insurance companies for professional liability insurance.

Successful completion of this diploma course will provide you with the title of "Sports Massage Therapist", and the knowledge and techniques needed to give a treatment.
