Why choose a BTEC course ?
at the KEA
Student funding diminishes after 19 yrs of age so make sure you pick the right Equine course on leaving school - and don't get left behind !
BTEC Diplomas provide a practical, real-world approach to learning alongside a theoretical background, giving learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare themselves for employment or University.
Our BTEC Diplomas are Educational in principle but Practical by nature and are delivered in one of the most successful and commercial Stableyards in Kent - They are not to be confused with Work Based Learning or Apprenticeship schemes offered by some which will require you to work up to 5 days per week in return for 'on-the-Job' training !
BTEC Diplomas are highly regarded by Universities, Further Education Colleges and Employers. On successful completion of one of our BTEC qualifications, learners can progress to employment or continue their learning within the same or related areas of study, in higher education, degree and professional development programs.
Studying a BTEC Diploma at The KEA allows you to leave behind the formal surroundings of school and enter a practical and 'Grown up' Learning environment without having to compromise on your Academic opportunities.
