BTEC Business Studies is a subject that has really gone from strength to strength at Spalding Academy.

In 2017, 83 per cent of students who took that subject achieved a Level 2 Pass and of those, 39 per cent achieved a Distinction or Distinction* (equivalent to A/A*).

This summer, the results are expected to increase further, with 100 per cent of students set to achieve a Level 2 Pass and 71 per cent of those predicted a Distinction or Distinction*.

The students are highly motivated by this vocational course that is so closely linked to business and finance industries, proving key transferable skills to prepare them for further study at Level 3 and, ultimately, the world of work.

As part of their course, Year 11 students have been taking part in mock interviews this week with professionals from local business.

Craig Delaney from Calthrops Solicitors in Spalding and Guardian editor Jeremy Ransome carried out the mock interviews on Monday.

Spalding Academy’s head of business Camilla Brennan said: “The students really benefited from the opportunity to practice their skills in this way and we are really grateful to Craig and Jeremy for giving up their time to work with our students.”
