Exciting new opportunities for Post-16 learning

Baleares International College is proud to be offering BTECs for post-16 students across Mallorca.

BTECs are high quality, hands-on qualifications grounded in the real world of work. For BTEC students, it’s all about learning by doing and putting what they learn into practice straight away. With their focus on skills-based learning, BTEC courses are designed around themed units. Rather than testing everything together at the end, BTECs are assessed throughout the course using assignments set in real-life scenarios, where students develop and apply the practical knowledge and skills employers and higher education institutions are looking for.

BIC will initially be offering two BTEC qualifications starting in September, both based on what this spectacular island needs, wants and can offer.

BTEC Travel and Tourism

Do you love working with people, have great customer service skills and want to build a career in an industry with plenty of entry level and progression opportunities?

Then the travel and hospitality industry could be for you. Employers range from international household-names to hotels, travel groups and small, family-run businesses.

The BTEC Travel and Tourism course offers a hands-on, practical, assignment-based approach, which means you’ll put your learning straight into practice and build a portfolio of experience to help you hit the ground running in your career.

Sixth Form 1

BTEC Sport

Do you enjoy being active, keeping fit, learning about wellness or coaching others? Would you like to have a career in sports, fitness or nutrition?

A BTEC in Sport is a great way to learn about working in the sport and fitness sector. There are so many careers involved in sport – sports coach, nutritionist and sports psychologist, to name a few.

On BTEC Sport courses you’ll learn in and outside the classroom, getting to grips with the theory behind sport as well as getting involved in playing it, giving you a well-rounded understanding of the subject.

Sport 2

Baleares International College hopes that these two new courses, offered for the first time, will allow students to continue with their post-16 studies confident in the knowledge that their career prospects are continually improving.
