Vocational and BTEC courses
These offer a more career-focused alternative to A-levels while also allowing progression into higher education. Equivalent to three A-levels, these courses take a practical approach to developing essential knowledge and skills in the subject area. Courses range from Level 1 foundation studies to Level 3 extended diplomas.
Earn while you learn! An apprenticeship is a paid job with an accompanying skills development programme which allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real on-the-job experience.
