What kind of work will I do outside the classroom?

What could I do at the end of my course? (Progressions)

This can follow either directly after achieving the qualification, or via the stepping stone of Higher Education (HE) in university or college. By studying a BTEC National, learners develop knowledge, understanding and skills required by the sector, including essential employability skills, and apply them in real work contexts. Learners can operate at a standard that can reasonably be expected of an 18 year old in full-time education.

Entry Requirements: GCSE English C, Maths C + portfolio of other qualifications.
