Assessment is by coursework. 

Please note the awarding body for all BTEC qualifications recently made the decision to extend the current BTEC courses in our offer beyond 2018. This means that for 2018 entry, all Level 3 vocational subjects will continue to be assessed by coursework only, with the exception of Art and Design.

BTEC courses have a well-proven record of helping students gain employment in many areas of business or progress to higher education, particularly if they wish to study a business related degree. You will have the opportunity to progress to careers in accountancy, law, marketing, advertising and brand management, economic development, social work, teaching and creative media.
