Now in their fourth year, the National BTEC Awards 2014 reward individuals, colleges and employees Every year, we hear wonderful and inspiring stories from teachers and tutors and other learning providers about truly outstanding BTEC students and apprentices in schools, colleges and work-based placements across the UK and internationally.
Cambridge video production company WaveFX were commissioned for a third year to document these amazing stories.
Jack Ormandy, Senior Marketing Events Executive at Pearson Publishing commented:
“We have worked with WaveFX for the past three years on our annual awards ceremony producing winners videos, and now couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. These videos have become the highlight of our awards ceremony every year and this is down to the professional, creative and talented attributes of the whole WaveFX team. They always deliver fantastic results, on time and on budget, and make our jobs that bit easier”
The ceremony was held in recognition of the nearly one million students around the country who are studying BTEC qualifications this year. Pearson, who own Edexcel, the awarding body for BTECs, received over 1000 nominations across the 20 award categories for this year’s Awards.
