How is the course assessed
Taken over 1 year a mixture of core, mandatory and optional units which are assessed through both external paper based examination and coursework.
As with the previous BTEC First (QCF) the student is only allowed one submission of work and then if conditions are met they may have one resubmission. However; unlike the previous BTEC, they will not be allowed a retake if they do not achieve the pass at this point. Instead they will be given an unclassified for that unit. This will not mean that they fail the whole course but we will have to keep a careful eye on what they get in the other units in order to make sure that they do achieve a pass overall.
We will still offer work experience for the students but they do not have to complete this to pass the course. Obviously this course will be part of the bigger study programme including Maths and English.
