Two-year career-focused courses based on the real world of work, for ages 16 and over.

All of our BTEC Courses combine practical learning with subject and theory content and reflect the increasing need for high quality professional and technical education pathways for students interested in a particular sector or industry. CHCC received a Gold Award for BTEC School of the Year 2020 in recognition of our dedication and commitment in providing BTEC subjects that are widely recognised by industry and worldwide universities as the principal vocational qualification therefore allowing students to progress onto a degree at level 6.

We offer a Level 3 in Business for students aged 16+. With a focus on practical, skills-based learning, students study several units for which they will need to present evidence, based on actual work and studies. This allows them to demonstrate their skills and knowledge, while building their portfolio of work. Rather than testing everything together at the end of the course, BTECs give students the opportunity to show what they have learnt in each unit and build on their achievements as they progress.

Our Level 4 & 5 BTEC qualifications in Business, Sports Management and Hospitality Management are designed for students aged 17+ who want to gain both recognition through higher education level study and want to progress to the final year of an honours degree. BTEC Higher National qualifications are widely recognised by industry and Universities.
