CVQO Newsletter – Spring 2022

Final enrolments available for 21/22 BTEC Level 2 academic year

We have had a fantastic response to our 21/22 BTEC Level 2 academic year and it has been brilliant to see so many enrolments coming from the MOD Cadet Forces, as well as St John Ambulance, The Fire Cadets, Police Cadets, Scouts and Boys Brigade.

There are still funded places available for young people to enrol on the qualification but numbers are very limited. We are down to the last few hundred enrolments and these are sure to go quickly. If you or your young people are interested, we would advise you to put your name down very soon!

As a reminder, the BTEC Level 2 is comprised of 14 units that learners can choose to create their own path through the qualification. Unit 1 (Developing Effective Teamwork Skills) is mandatory. Once that is complete, you can choose any two optional units for the Extended Certificate and any five optional units for the Diploma.

There are a variety of ways to complete the qualification and support is available from CVQO every step of the way. For more information and to enrol, please visit our website here >>


BTEC Level 2 learner support materials

Don’t forget there is a huge amount of support material available online for learners who are enrolled on a BTEC Level 2 qualification.

On the CVQO website, you will find links to online support sessions, resource materials and workbooks that are all designed to help learners get the most out of the qualification.

CVQO Westminster Award 2022

In April, we returned to Outposts in Somerset for the first time since 2019 for our annual CVQO Westminster Award selection event. 40 candidates from the Royal Air Force Air Cadets, Army Cadet Force, Sea Cadet Corps, St John Ambulance, Fire Cadets and our first-ever finalist from the Scouts competed in a varied programme which included command tasks, table top strategy sessions, interviews and the debut of CVQO’s now infamous mystery task.

Another Westminster Award first saw a staff team taking on the candidates in a winner takes all gun run finale. Despite their advanced age, the staff team came out on top – with a little help from some previous finalists…

Of course, we wish we could take every one of the young people who were nominated to Cornwall and the House of Lords. They have all been such wonderful ambassadors both for CVQO and their respective youth groups and we know they will go on to achieve brilliant things.

Employability Skills Workshop sessions for May and June

We have recently uploaded a new list of our very popular Employability Skills Workshop sessions to the CVQO website. These are a fantastic way to help you develop the sort of skills that employers are looking for and assist with the completion of Unit 3 in our BTEC Level 2 qualification.

And finally…

As always, thank you for all that you do for CVQO. Without your support and dedication, we simply could not reach the many thousands of young people that we do each year. If you are interested in helping us deliver our qualifications in the UK, please do get in touch with your uniformed youth organisation or drop us a message directly via the CVQO website.
