What is a vocational course?
Vocational courses, also known as BTECs, are designed to help you learn in a practical way about a specific job area. The focus is on coursework, with a balance of hands-on practical experience and some external assessments - a great choice if you know the kind of area you want to work in. And they are also widely-recognised qualifications to get you into university, apprenticeships or employment. Most students join us on a Level 3 BTEC programme (which on completion is equivalent to achieving 3 A Levels), but depending on your GCSE results, you we also offer BTEC Level 2 programmes.
