BTEC Qualification

Was looking at a course that offered BTEC award, whats the difference between BTEC and FETAC awards?

BTEC is a UK qualification. For more info look here; http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Educatio...ed/DG_10039020. FETAC is Irish and is based on the old NCVA system. FETAC website is www.fetac.ie. FETAC has now been superseded by QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland).

To get information on how BTEC and the Irish levels relate to each other the National Qualifcations Authority of Ireland should be able to help you. www.nqai.ie

They look at qualifications from other countries and relate it to the Irish system. You can give them a ring with a general query if you are considering doing a BTEC course in Ireland and want to see what it equates to in QQI levels.
