Taxi BTEC Information

The course delivery commences when each applicant receives the training bundle free of charge from the HTA. Therefore, every applicant is afforded the specified guidance of up to 150 hours TQT guided learning hours.


Our BTECs are delivered by staff with extensive teaching and training experience in a variety of educational establishments. Our team comprises of teachers, assessors, examiners, verifiers and senior leaders.


Our programmes are quality assured by experts to ensure the best possible outcomes for all students.


We strive to deliver high quality courses and ensure that all our students have the best possible chance of achieving their qualifications.


The course is held at the Humberside Training Associates purpose built taxi training centre.


How our course works each student/learner receives Free of charge a 175-page Training document prior to the course, this enables the student/learner to study and revise in their own relaxed home surroundings with out the need to take unnecessary time off work to attend a classroom. However, if needed the student/learner can contact us at anytime during the revision and studying period. Unlike other BTEC providers our course allows the student to complete the recommended estimated TQT learning hours which is evident in the high pass rate of our course.


The Training bundle consists of the Full Pearson syllabus and 9 stages and incudes the 105-pages of Standards.


The course is conducted in testing conditions in a classroom environment based at the purpose built HTA training centre (The Wilberforce Centre). The HTA through their own Training officer Mr David Stewart BA Hons in Education and Training offer the Numeracy Entry Level 3 and Literacy level 1. 


Additional, important copies of the council’s Statuary documents and a Safe guarding leaflet are also supplied Free of charge.


Total Qualification Time (TQT)

For all regulated qualifications, regulators specify a total number of hours that it is estimated learners will require to complete and show achievement for the qualification: this is the Total Qualification Time (TQT). Within TQT, regulators identify the number of Guided Learning Hours (GLH) that we estimate a centre delivering the qualification might provide. Guided learning means activities, such as lessons, tutorials, online instruction, supervised study and giving feedback on performance, that directly involve teachers and assessors in teaching, supervising and invigilating learners. Guided learning includes the time required for learners to complete external assessment under examination ore supervised conditions.
