Over the next few parades I will be handing out enrolment forms for this years BTEC courses, of which you are eligible to sign up for.
You can choose to complete CVQO BTEC Level 2 in either Teamwork and Personal Development or Music for Public Performance. These awards are nationally recognised qualifications which can be added to your CV or UCAS form and are a formal certificate of the work and activities you do on squadron. Please see the attached flyers for more information.
The Teamwork and Personal Development course is a 360-hour learning course. However, when you gather evidence of things you have already done (eg Silver DofE, JNCO Course, Volunteering Events) all that is left to do is a day at the squadron completing the work book.
The music BTEC will require more independent study and include some practical performance activities. These can be completed as part of a music camp (eg North Region Band Camp).
Unfortunately you cannot complete both awards at the same time.
If you are interested in applying for one of the courses, please fill in the application form attached, or get one from the squadron and put it in the white tin.
Applications must be received by Friday 1st September.
Any questions, please ask.
