The Foundation Diploma/Extended Diploma is a three A Level equivalent, and therefore recommended for those intending to progress on to university or a career in the sector. In addition to the units listed above, you will also cover business decision making and other optional units.
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 supporting a wide range of careers ranging from accountancy and marketing to banking and customer service. Many students also progress to higher education, particularly if they wish to study a business related degree.
