Vocational Qualifications

Much of the learning focus at the Earth Centre is practical and investigative. This approach lends itself perfectly to use of the widely-recognised BTEC and Cambridge Technical (C-Tech) qualifications.

These qualifications provide the right blend of practical, technical and academic skills to help you become the highly-skilled work-ready person that employers and universities look for.

BTEC qualifications have been developed by Pearson Education in collaboration with over 5,000 universities, employers and professional bodies with employability at the heart.

All BTEC qualifications include:
  • Work experience
  • Clear progression routes into higher education and future careers
  • Development of transferable skills such as investigative and analytical research, team work and communication skills
