Applied Science EDEXCEL BTEC Extended Diploma Level 3 at Cornwall College
BTECs offer a practical approach that can be lacking in more traditional routes, by applying learning to real-life situations. Students have to undertake a number of units for which they present evidence, based on actual work and studies. This allows them to demonstrate their skill and knowledge.
A BTEC in Applied Science can help you achieve your full potential. Learners are rewarded along the way for consistent hard work and demonstration of their knowledge. A BTEC in Applied Science offers active learning in a vocational context and builds confidence, competence and motivation in your learners.
Students, of all abilities, often fail to see the link between what they learn in an academic sense and the world of work. BTECs in Applied Science change all that. The vocational learning style is completely different from the more traditional routes. Students may research their topics and present results in a wide variety of ways other than written text. They don't have to work alone - group interaction can often play a part, for example through teamwork and role-play. BTECs can engage and enhance the performance of all learners, who recognise that the skills they are developing are those that employers will value. They are learning in a practical way without the need to commit to an apprenticeship.
The BTECs in Applied Science are recognised and respected by employers, professional institutions and higher education establishments alike. And through our work with sector skills councils (SSCs) we've made sure our BTECs are closely attuned to the needs of the employers in the science marketplace.
