Types of Course

A-Levels are single courses, and each one is taught for 5 hours per week. BTEC courses have a more practical and vocational emphasis and are equivalent to one, two or three A Levels dependent on course and subject. They offer full UCAS points and provide clear pathways and opportunities into work-based learning or related higher-education courses.

Please note
Although a course may be listed, it cannot be guaranteed to run. Whilst every effort will be made, it will be dependent upon appropriate levels of demand.
