Post 16 Curriculum


Curriculum Pathways

At BACA College we offer pathways that involve different qualifications, all of which can lead to further or higher education, apprenticeships or employment.

A full time Level 3 timetable will normally include two or three subjects plus a specialist academy if you choose to do one.  The double BTEC Level 3 is a two year diploma course and the qualification is equivalent to two A-Levels.  The single BTEC is a two year subsidiary diploma and the qualification is equivalent to one A-Level.  You can mix and match single and double BTECs alongside A-Levels to create your preferred choice of subjects.  We are also able to offer a range of Level 2 courses designed to support your progression.

Our Construction Academy provides a dedicated pathway where you will develop skills and secure industry recognised qualifications and certification. Our courses range from Level 1 to Level 3.  Mathematics and English retakes will form part of your programme of study if you were unsuccessful in achieving a grade 4 or higher.

Our current BACA College prospectus is undergoing updates and a new one will be available soon.  View our most recent BACA College prospectus here.

Alongside all other colleges in the city, plans for the previously advertised BACA College Open Evening have had to change due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

The Open Evening for external applicants and their families will be moving online with a video presentation that will be available on our website from Tuesday 3 November, personalised follow up and the offer of private tours at different times over the coming weeks.

If you have booked a place at our Open Evening, you will receive a personal call from the BACA College team after half term.
