In association with the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy (previously the National Enterprise Academy), founded by leading entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones CBE, Edexcel has developed two innovative BTECs that will lead the way in creating the entrepreneurs and intrepreneurs of the future.
In June 2011, we held two BTEC Enterprise and Entrepreneurship launch events. With presentations from an entrepreneur, teachers delivering the course, and students, they were a great introduction to the qualifications. For those of you who missed out, we filmed them for you!
View the presentations and download the slides.
The BTEC Level 2 Diploma Understanding Enterprise and Entrepreneurship is available for first teaching for 14-19 year olds and the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship is available for first teaching for 16-19 year olds.

We're delighted to announce that UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) has approved the tariff points for the BTEC Level 3 National qualifications accredited on the QCF. Find out more.
Sample assignments are available for each unit at Level 2 and Level 3 to help support and guide you as you prepare for assessment in your centre. They're available as Word documents so you can edit them to suit your centre’s requirements. Simply click on the links to the qualification pages above and look for 'Sample assignments' in the Documents section.
