A-Levels are the traditional option for students who are very committed to academic study, for whom university is the likely option.
A-Level Qualifications are largely exam based courses, although some A-Levels do involve coursework components.
Applied and Technical Qualifications
Applied and Technical Qualifications are exam and coursework based courses which involve a vocational element. This may involve a work experience placement or engagement with skills that prepare students for the workplace. Courses are worth either 1.5 or 2 A-Levels in terms of university tariff points, depending on how we structure a student’s programme of study. Applied and Technical Qualifications provide an excellent pathway for students aspiring to competitive universities, higher apprenticeships and industry training schemes.
