What BTECs are offered at Braeside?

Braeside High School offers BTEC Extended Diploma in Business, Sports and Hospitality as a post IGCSE qualification alongside the A Levels. BTEC programmes have been some of the most successful courses we offer at the School. This is a two-year full time course that meets entry requirements to higher university education both locally and internationally. Being an Extended Diploma course some of the graduates opt to venture into employment immediately after completing the course.

These are career-based qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to higher education or go straight into employment.

When combined with academic learning at Braeside BTEC develops a range of practical knowledge and skills which help learners to prepare for life at universities and work places.

Classroom style teaching combined with project work and practical work-related activities help to develop students' behavioural skills, which include teamwork, research, creative thinking and presentation skills.

More employers and Higher Education institutions than ever before are choosing BTEC-qualified candidates for their academic and practical knowledge and skills. Part of the course requires that students get work related experience. The students also learn through organised academic trips to businesses, corporate companies and government parastatals in order to gain first hand work related experiences.

A big thank you to some of the long term partners and corporates who have given our learners opportunities in their business to gain such valuable experiences. Thank you to the Central Bank of Kenya, Equity Bank, Bata, IPSOS, Brookside just but to name a few.
