The majority of these units will be completed through practical tasks supported by written documentation.

What Other Opportunities Will I Have?
In addition to having the opportunity to achieve the BTEC level 2 Diploma Music, learners also have the opportunity to take part in cross-curricular and extra-curricular activities including vocal workshops.
