Examining board Edexcel has expanded its range of Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) introductory certificates with four courses, including one in information technology (IT). The qualifications are available from September 2003 and offer students a vocational alternative to General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE). Alongside certificates in health and social care, performing arts and tourism, Edexcel will offer an IT Essentials BTEC. The BTEC introductory certificates are equivalent to GCSE grades D to G.
