All about our new BTEC Level 2 qualification
How does it work?
CVQO’s BTEC Level 2 Teamwork and Personal Development in the Community (TPD) qualification has been specifically designed with young people in mind. It is comprised of 15 units (Unit 15 to be released early 2022) that our 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. These also include three music units, which are combined within the qualification.
How can I complete the work?
For the first time, our learners have the option to complete the qualification in a number of ways:
- Blended learning via face-to-face or virtual delivery workshops
- Paper workbooks and learning guides
- Our Virtual Learning Environment (CVQO Moodle)
These all combine to create a flexible, interactive approach to the course.
What will I learn?
TPD takes every aspect of what it means to be a member of a uniformed youth group in the UK and gives you a brilliant, internationally-recognised qualification. You can expect to study topics such as developing teamwork and communication skills, health and fitness, adventurous activities, land navigation, preparing for employment, volunteering, leadership skills and citizenship and community awareness.
Am I eligible and is the qualification funded?
You are eligible to enrol on the BTEC Level 2 if you have completed Year 11 at school and you were born between 1 September 2002 and 31 August 2005.
CVQO receives a grant from the government each year to offer BTEC Level 2 qualifications to members of uniformed youth organisations in England. Limited places are available to learners in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
