Core and Additional in One year?

Discussion in 'Science' started by juhi, Feb 10, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    Having finished all 6 units of the BTEC in year 10 i am considering routes for this lot and was wondering if anybody out there has done core and additional in one year with their students and if so, how did it go?
    I know there are lots of colleges that just require students to have a C in Core so may just do Core only but kids will be bored stiff having done this content in the BTEC. Additional gives them a better chance at entry into sixth form and both core and additional may help with our EBacc figures although unlikely given that these students were intially chosen for BTEC in year 10.
    Any advice please.

  2. Teach them the additional stuff and put them in for the core one just in case... Foundation should be ok at core... Famous last words.
  3. How many lessons a week?
  4. 5 x 1hour lessons a week. Possible?
