BTECs are mainly two year courses but some subjects do have a one year quali cation equivalent to an AS level and can be taken as a one year option. Where this is possible the quali cations are modular and co-taught with students achieving a quali cation at the end of year one and year two. Our IT courses offer the Cambridge Technical Quali cation which is assessed in the same way as BTECs.
Subjects available in 2017 are:-
Applied Science, Business, Dance, Hospitality and Event Management, Information Technology, Media, Music Technology, Performing Arts, Sport, Travel and Tourism
