Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College is situated in an inner-city area in Liverpool, surrounded by local industry, including hospitals and transportation companies, such as Mersey Rail.

Through BTEC qualifications, the school has been able to develop relationships with these employers, who can offer work experience, come into the school to give lectures, or help with projects such as mock job interviews.

"We want our students to get the best results possible, and we feel that BTEC qualifications really support this"

Paul Stirling, Deputy Headteacher
