The knowledge,understanding and skills learnt in studying a BTEC First will aid progression to further study and prepare learners to enter the workplace in due course. In the business sector, learners would be aiming to move into entry-level roles, such as assistants in business administration, marketing, finance, human resources, sales and customer service.
BTECs are vocationally related qualifications, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context.
Additionally, they are popular and effective because they engage learners to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills that are essential for the modern-day workplace.
These skills include: team working; working from a prescribed brief; working to deadlines; presenting information effectively; and accurately completing administrative tasks and processes. BTEC Firsts motivate learners, and open doors to progression into further study and responsibility within the workplace.
Students will also have the opportunity to be part of the West Ham United Football Academy and the Newham Cricket Academy. To find out how you can be part of our sports academies, go to https://www.newham.ac.uk/student-services/student-academies.html
