Course description

This is a two-year course for those students wishing to gain the equivalent of 1 A-level. The BTEC National Subsidiary Diploma provides opportunities for learners to develop a range of skills, qualities and attitudes essential for successful performance in working life. We have a successful Business Studies Department with longstanding experience in the delivery of applied education. Practical approaches to learning are employed using a range of local and national companies with whom we have developed links over a number of years. Regular visits are an integral part of this course and students also have the opportunity to become involved in Young Enterprise. There may be an opportunity for suitably

qualified students to undertake the 90 credit option equivalent to 1½ A-levels.
