You will have probably heard the word ‘vocational’ or ‘BTECs’ thrown around a lot, and are wondering what it all means.

Well, vocational or BTEC, refers to one or two-year courses that  allow you to choose one subject, to study full-time. The best part about these courses is that they are very practical, hands-on and enable you to spend lots of time learning the skills needed  to be successful in your chosen career.

They are also entirely misunderstood! Many assume that vocational courses are not as
valuable as A levels but this is completely untrue.They can still give you the opportunity to go to university, complete an apprenticeship or secure employment. Some provide the same amount of UCAS tariff points as A levels with Russell Group universities accepting BTECs as entry qualifications. In the past year alone, over 300 of our level 3 vocational
students progressed to universities around the country!

Progression Routes

Many of our courses give you the opportunity to begin your studies at level 1, 2 or 3.

So whether you start at level 1 or level 2 and progress through to level 3, or go straight on to the level 3, our progression opportunities can take you on to an apprenticeship, university or into employment.
