Btec diploma

Discussion in 'Drama and performing arts' started by Carnation, Feb 21, 2011.

  1. Any thoughts?
  2. I really enjoy teaching this course, the flexibility of the texts to perform and devise mean that I can continue to challenge myself as well as the students. I change texts and stimulus every year.
    The students are able to keep redoing work for as long as it takes to pass and can redo/alter work to take them to a higher level which has meant better results.
    At the school I am at we teach both BTEC and GCSE and personally I prefer to teach the BTEC course (though the other member of my department would disagree as she prefers the more structured side of GCSE)
    There is a lot of paper pushing with the IV and EV process with BTEC but in my humble opinion the pros outweigh the cons.
