    Dear TESers

    I am trying to put together a proposal for post-16 (to study barriers to learning). I am quite comfortable working with AS and A2 courses as have managed and delivered them for some years. Being an English teacher, I have little experience of BTEC/vocational courses and their delivery. I am curious to know what issues learners face and how it is possible to fail/withdraw from their chosen courses. Is it for similar reasons as AS/A2 (poorly chosen courses, difficult home/family circumstances, lack of organisation/attendance etc.)? I guess I am assuming that BTECs/NVQs may come with their own issues which are a part of the way the course is structured (all coursework). Any ideas/wisdom gratefully received. If you have any solutions that you know work, then that would be fab too! Am happy to share what I have so far….

    Thanks in advance

    English TT
