To help in the study of this programme, students in the first year will undertake study of 9 units. Six of these count towards a Subsidiary Diploma which could be 'banked' after the first year. However, for a student wishing to progress to complete the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma, it is imperative to have a pass in all 9 of the Year 1 units with a view to completing 17 units in total over the two years. It is possible for a student, in the second year to apply for a Diploma Certification (11 units in total), but this would only be done at the end of Year 2 when the final Exam Board Assessments are compiled.
