What are BTECs
BTECs are vocational courses that combine study towards a qualification with real life experience of industry. BTEC Level 3 courses are 2-year study programmes which are equivalent to 3 A Levels.
At CTK Emmanuel, students gain experience of industry through high quality work placements, inspirational talks, and visits from prominent industry figures.

Why should I choose a BTEC level course
BTECs can be a great choice if you have a passion for a certain subject or career, and you already have a good idea of the career path you want. Specialising early in a subject such as business, science, engineering, forensic science, IT, health, sport, performing arts or creative media, can get you ahead of your peers when it comes to being offered a job, a Degree Apprenticeship, or joining a graduate employment scheme after university.
