Vocational qualifications like BTECs are work-related courses, giving you the skills and knowledge needed for a particular career or job role. These courses are more practical than theory-based A-Levels, but that doesn’t mean they’re an easier option.
With BTECs, you’ll gain hands-on experience and you’ll be trained to the high standard that employers expect, and as joint top-performing college for vocational qualifications in Wales, we have a wide selection of courses for you to explore.
