In 2016 we offered the BTEC qualification in music technology for the very first time as part of the BTEC Music International syllabus.
BTECs are courses that develop a broad range of skills in job related areas. They are practical programmes and highly valued by employers and colleges. BTEC international level 2 diplomas in music are equivalent to IGCSEs at grade A* to C. The course focuses on education and training related to the workplace. The BTEC is 100% coursework-based. Pupils are assessed in a variety of ways. This will include practical, written work presentations and report writing.
The lessons will vary according to the subject and level but all pupils should experience most of these activities:
- Discussion – one to one or in groups
- Research – group or individual using a variety of methods
- Report writing – manually or using ICT
- Presentations – in groups or individually
- Practical work
- Display work
- Visits to organisations/companies
- Work with visitors
Our brand new recording studio and Mac computer suite provide excellent facilities and opportunities for inventive projects and assignments.
