A BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma is a work-related course. You learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. As well as learning about the employment area you have chosen, you develop the skills you need to start or progress a career. Valued by employers and universities, they offer a clear route into employment or higher education. It is equivalent to three A-Levels.
Five GCSE’s at Grade 4 (C) or above including Maths and English. Level 3 students who do not achieve a grade 4 in English and/or Maths will study a GCSE in the subject(s) as part of their study programme.
On successful completion of this course, students can progress onto the Foundation Degree in Engineering course or a Graduate programme at university.
