Business or health and social care??Watch this thread
Hi, of course this is dependent on personal views but i would really appreciate peoples opinions. I am currently undecided on wether to do a BTEC L3 in business or health and social care. I have always wanted to be a teacher and by doing health and social care i can progress on to university and get a teaching degree. On the other hand i would love a job in business, either marketing or advertising as i think this kind of job would pay good money (better than a teachers salary) and would also be really fun. Therefore im stuck between the two courses. It would help to get some feed back from different people, thanks in advance
Which kind of teaching would you want to do? If you wanted to do the primary pgce, i believe some universities aren't too fussy about what your undergrad was in, whereas for secondary it would matter.
OP, do what you think you'd enjoy more!
Hiya, do you find it difficult? Also what kind of grades did you get at GCSE because i am average C/D with A in design, just wandering how im going to find L3
The highlight of this course is work experience. Universities really value it especially for any health and social care degrees because it shows you have experience and are capable of working with people. It's also a chance for you to see and try whether teaching is for you. I'm actually now in the process of writing my personal statement to do primary education.
If you're starting this September I assume you will be on the new spec. The new spec has exams for unit 5 and unit 8 (not sure about other units), I'm sure it's not that difficult. Even if you do get a bad grade you still have coursework to back you up.
