How the BTEC course works
To achieve the full Diploma Award students must complete and pass units which add up to 120 credits at the end of two years. All work is internally assessed and moderated by visiting moderators. Students will undertake a range of theoretical assignments throughout the course, most involving research within the Hospitality sector, guided by your teachers. Practical skills are also assessed for the relevant units. Students achieve Pass, Merit or Distinction awards – though as the course is broadly equivalent to two A Levels, there are two grades given. For example a student may achieve a Pass/Merit or a Distinction/Distinction depending on the points scored for each unit. There are starred Distinctions for exceptional performance.
