Cambridge Technicals (CTEC)

Cambridge Technicals (CTECs) are a suite of vocational qualifications in a range of subject areas. Designed through consultation with employers and higher education providers, they offer opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, and behaviours required to progress in both education and the workplace.
Cambridge Technicals are designed specifically for students aged 16 and over, who have an interest in a particular sector.

They can be completed alongside A levels or other vocational courses.
This route suits students who prefer project based or coursework based tasks and practical learning.

A levels

Advanced level qualifications (A levels) are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, degree apprenticeships, training, or work. Students study three A levels over two years, although some may start with four. They are assessed by a series of examinations.

If you are thinking about going to university, most higher education courses require relevant A levels or A level and CTEC combinations.

If you are not sure what you want to do in the future, studying a selection of A levels is a good way of keeping your options open.

We encourage students planning to apply to university to check entry requirements for their desired course.
