Applied General (vocational)
The Academy offers an exciting vocational curriculum including BTEC (Edexcel), OCR (Cambridge) and ABC qualifications. Each of these are equivalent to one A Level (except Youth Work). For 2022/23 courses are available in the following subjects:
- Youth Work
- Food Science
- Health and Social Care
Vocational qualifications are suitable for those wishing to go from school directly into employment or apprenticeships but are also accepted by the vast majority of universities for a variety of vocationally based courses. In most cases, students choosing a vocational subject would be expected to have passed a level 2 qualification in that subject with grade M.
