How are students assessed?


BTEC qualifications have been designed with the aim of preparing learners for progression into employment, further training or further education. Individual units have been designed to meet specific skills gaps identified by employers, these including locational geography, customer service and employability skills.

Student attainment is assessed through portfolio assignments and one exam in

Year 11. Each unit involves the completion of 3 or 4 portfolio projects. Every assessment task must be completed to at least 'pass' standard for a final grade to be awarded.
