Key Stage 4
BTEC, unlike GCSE is a vocationally related qualification, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context. The skills that the students will learn include: team working, working from a prescribed brief, working to deadlines, presenting information effectively and accurately completing administrative tasks and processes. Both the BTEC qualifications we offer are equivalent to 1 GCSE and give the students wide ranging skills.
