New course

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by l0vaduck, Jun 27, 2011.

  1. 6 lessons to deliver a level 2 course? Do you mean 6 lessons in total, or 6 lessons a week?
  2. We have a similar set up for students who don't quite have the requirements to enter our 6th Form and need to resit. They do GCSE Maths, English and Science, 1 day a week Work Placement, then the BTEC First Diploma in Business (60 credits). I relate 4 of the units directly to their placement to give the placement its credibility. We used to do the BTEC First Diploma in Retail before it was taken off line which was directly related to their placement. Its worked really well for the last 4 years like this and I've seen these students move on to Level 3 course, take up apprenticeships and secure employment. Well worth it in my opinion!
