Headstart

The Headstart programme that is offered at Buxton Training Enterprises Ltd is aimed at students in years 8, 9, 10 and 11. The students that attend the centre do so in place of mainstream education.

Students have the opportunity to attend from one to five days per week and will engage in a variety of qualifications accredited by the Awarding Bodies NCFE and VTCT. We offer total flexibility and are more than happy to build the programme of attendance around the student.

All qualifications are nationally recognised and a number of these are listed on the approved Ofqual list of qualifications. The qualifications delivered can carry points towards the schools attainment table and will benefit students wanting to progress into Further Education as these will accumulate towards the Unique Learner Number.

The sessions are delivered in short bite size pieces using work packages developed by BTE, Hallmark Publishing Group and the Awarding Bodies. The sessions take into account individual student needs and requirements. We pride ourselves on being able to offer one to one support as well as small group work.

As we offer a wide variety of qualifications we are able to tailor the programme to personally fit the individual to encourage progression and achievement.

These packages now consist of Certificates in a variety of subjects and GCSE’s in Maths and English.

BTE Ltd can also offer to schools the chance for any young student in years 9, 10 and 11 the NVQ qualification in the Hairdressing Studies and Beauty Therapy.
