Display Your Creative Talents
BTEC courses suit students looking for a more vocational route to university study and/or a career in a specific area of interest. BTEC courses give students considerable freedom to display their creative talents, while developing their practical skills and knowledge base. Ongoing assessment with no end-of-year examinations ensures that students remain engaged throughout their course. The vocational learning style of BTEC courses is different from the more traditional routes. Students don’t have to work alone; group interaction can often play a part, for example through teamwork.
The BTEC Diploma is a full-time course of study lasting approximately 20-24 months. Classes are taught during the regular school terms on Mondays to Fridays between 8:00am and 3:35pm. Occasionally there will be extra activities or assessments during weekends or weekday evenings, necessitated by the course content.
