Traditional sixth forms force you to take multiple courses, sometimes making you take courses that don’t play to your strengths.
At The Hewett Academy we’ve talked to students, employers, and universities and come up with a new approach that we call BTEC Plus.
How it works
You’ll take just one core course: a BTEC Extended Diploma that explores one area in real depth, giving you the chance to gain practical skills you’ll use in a subject you love.
You’ll get expert teaching and the chance to build great bonds with your classmates. BTECs contain the perfect combination of practical and academic work; you’ll build a portfolio of evidence that demonstrates your growing practical skills and theoretical understanding.
Stick to your studies and you will achieve a valuable qualification, equivalent to three A Levels. These courses are highly valued by employers and recognised by universities if you want to study further.
And the Plus?
If you have your sights set on a specific job or university courses which requires an A Level qualification, you can bolt that on too.
You have the option to take an A Level from our carefully chosen selection of complementary subjects, so that you have maximum flexibility for the future.
It’s BTEC, plus.
