BTECs

"BTECs are brilliant for students who are really good at taking command of their own learning: they’re much closer to a degree than A Level in terms of style of learning. The Engineering BTEC includes Maths, Physics and Science. There are so many units to choose from: students can bring their own personality into their learning."

Mr P. Ryan, Engineering teacher at Christ the King College


At Christ the King, you will find that our BTEC programme is the equal of the A Level in every way. Our BTEC students study for the elite Level 2 and Level 3 Diplomas and BTEC students have exactly the same status as those who have opted for A Levels: at Christ the King, everyone in the college community is valued equally.

BTECs are the perfect choice for students who want to focus on a single area of study and who particularly enjoy 'applied', practical learning which is assessed through course work rather than examinations.

They are ideal qualifications for those who have ambitions to enter the professions, but they are increasingly an option for those who want to go on to university.

While some universities have historically favoured A Levels, this is changing and increasing numbers of BTEC students are winning places at elite univerisites.
