SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Some people think the only way to get in to university or to secure a good job is to study A-Levels. They’re wrong.
Take a look at a video produced by our merger partner Solihull College & University Centre, setting the record straight on some popular vocational course misconceptions.
CHOOSING A PATH
Vocational courses focus on teaching you the specific skills needed in a particular subject area to succeed in the industry, something which is highly attractive to employers. In fact the College speaks directly to top employers when course content is being designed.
Not only that, but 95% of higher education institutions in the UK accept BTEC students, so if university is your aim, a vocational course can be a great path to follow. You may also be ahead of your peers in terms of practical experience!
