There have been changes to the assessment of BTEC Firsts. 75% of your work will be internally assessed but you will also take a paper-based test, a set task or performance or an on screen on demand test. The external assessment will be at least one of the core units and a mandatory unit.
Four GCSEs at grade D or above or equivalent Level 1 qualification with Functional Skills in Maths and English at Level 1 and a good reference. If you do not already have qualifications in English and Maths you will need to do a short test. You will need to demonstrate a keen interest in performing and attend an interview and audition.
