BTEC qualifications encourage high ability students to discover different sectors of work, develop their practical understanding, and become independent learners. For struggling students they offer an alternative style of learning to the high pressure of GCSE, allowing them to make progress in learning, develop skills, and build up their own self-esteem and confidence.

"Choice and opportunity sums up BTEC for us."

Sharon Wood, Head of Sixth Form and Performing Arts teacher
