I have done level 2 and 3 and enjoyed both years that I have now gone onto studying a degree in business. Business is a very good subject to go into as it is very broad which means that there is many areas that you could specialise in and there are plenty of jobs out there.

The good thing about BTEC's are that they are more practical so it is not all theory based which allows you to learn it in a different way which is normally more interesting.

I would definitely recommend doing a BTEC in business
