Higher Education Learners (SEND)

A-Level Extra

For 2019/20 study, Preston’s College are providing Level 3 learners with the option to study one A-Level alongside their technical-vocational qualification. Choosing whether to study a BTEC or A-Level pathway can be a tough decision to make, that’s why we’re offering learners the opportunity to combine both methods of study to create a broader combination of qualifications. This combination gives you the chance to develop your creative and technical skills during a BTEC, while developing your research and analytical skills through A-Levels.

HOW IT WORKS

STEP 1: Choose your Level 3 programme

STEP 2: Choose one A-Level option from the three choices below:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Biology

EXAMPLES
— Level 3 Performing Arts + English
— Level 3 Applied Science + Biology
— Level 3 Mechanical Engineering + Maths

KEY BENEFITS
— Earn extra UCAS points to help you progress onto university
— Learn practical skills and experience alongside academic theory
— Gain an additional qualification to broaden your future career opportunities
— Strengthen job and apprenticeship applications
