How to choose the right course

Students are advised to focus on subjects they enjoy and are good at. However, if a student has a specific career path in mind it is important to select the required courses to enable this to happen. Information, advice and guidance meetings which, are personalised to each student, take place before enrolment is confirmed.

Level 3 qualifications on offer are, BTEC Extended Diploma and BTEC Subsidiary Diploma. All pathways offer access to higher education qualifications. Universities either use grades or point scores to allow access to degree courses and all qualifications can combine to give suitable scores for entry. The BTEC Extended Diploma is equivalent to 3 A Levels.
