    We are struggling to recruit students to choose BTEC Applied Science in my sixth form. Has anyone had any success stories/ideas in increasing uptake for BTEC courses? Any suggestions on how to get rid of the negative perception students have of doing a BTEC course?
    Any ideas would be much appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    It's still a stigma in some colleges. Maybe combine an A'level with a BTEC and provide this as an option for weaker students or those who struggle with exams. A positive mindset towards vocational studies is needed in the college. Show the students that universities are accepting BTEC's in most subject areas and sell it to them in that way
