This programme is designed to support students with the potential of achieving high grades at A Level and Vocational Diploma and helps to prepare them for Oxford, Cambridge and the Russell Group Universities.
This programme targets students who have a high potential to excel in their sport, either by competing on the international stage or securing a professional contract.
Many students go onto higher level apprenticeships sometimes with the companies they completed their work placement at. These days more students are applying for Degree Apprenticeships where their employer pays for them to complete a university degree. Engineering Students from Henley College have successfully applied to, and joined the companies and organisations shown above.
Students completing their BTEC at Henley typically go on to study a wide range of engineering disciplines including Mechanical, Electrical, Automotive, aeronautical and even civil Engineering. Popular universities are Portsmouth, Oxford Brookes, Hatfield, Coventry, Cardiff, Southampton, Birmingham, Nottingham
I attended The Henley College from 2015 and completed a BTEC in Engineering achieving D*D*D* and distinction in every unit across the two years.
When I joined The Henley College I was really impressed with how supportive the college was and how keen they were for us to push ourselves and reach our full potential. The atmosphere was also very comfortable and I found it easy to make new friends.
I chose to come to The Henley College because I knew I wanted to study engineering and the college offered a very structured course and had good results in the years prior to me joining. There was also a much more relaxed environment where I had a lot more independence than I would have done if I’d stayed on at sixth form. I think this not only helped my studies but I found the environment made it easier to make new friends and to have a life away from my studies!
"BTEC Engineering at Henley College has been very rewarding and the support I received has helped me to achieve my dream of being a race mechanic!"
