BTEC First & Applied GCSE courses at Theale Green School

Course description

The BTEC First and the Applied GCSE courses are 1 year courses and they are intended to provide students with the opportunity to increase the number of GCSE passes that they have at grades A*-C, so they can then move onto A level or BTEC National courses. These courses are particularly suitable for students whose GCSE passes were mainly at grade D or E.

The Applied GCSE course is assessed through exam and portfolio work, whereas the BTEC First qualification is assessed through portfolio work only. Students will be expected to choose at least 2 of these courses to study in Year 12.
