BTEC Level 2 Opportunities

Monday 27th April 2020

We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with CVQO in order to offer Seniors the opportunity to gain a BTEC Level 2 Qualification in Teamwork and Personal Development in the Community.

4th Southport has previously worked with CVQO at a local level, but we have decided to run a pilot residential event in spring 2021 (dates to be confirmed).

The BTEC covers:

  • Teamwork & Communication Skills
  • Employment Skills
  • Health & Fitness
  • Navigation and Expedition skills
  • Volunteering

Whilst there will be an element of studying and completing workbooks during the event, there will also be team building events and times to relax. The practical elements of the qualification may well have been covered by other activities that have already been completed (DofE, Queen’s Badge etc.), however young people shouldn’t be put off applying if they haven’t done these.

Emily Norcross, young leader at 4th Southport, said:
I’ve been able to develop my skills as working as part of a team and leading a team. I’ve also had the amazing opportunity to be part of the Westminster Award. I’ve gained many new friends from this and developed my teamwork and leadership skills further.

Andrew Norcross, Leader at 4th Southport, said:
“By completing the BTEC course, the young leaders at 4th Southport have developed their teamwork and leadership skills, which has supported them in their transition to leaders within the BB.”

Further information will be sent out once the date of the residential has been confirmed. If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please email stephen.taylor@boys-brigade.org.uk
