English language requirements

In order for students to be successful on BTEC Higher National qualifications which are both taught and assessed in English, it is critical that they have an appropriate level of English language skills.

Learners who are non-native English speakers and who have not undertaken their final two years of schooling in English, should demonstrate capability in English at a standard equivalent to the levels identified below, before being recruited to the qualification where it is both taught and assessed in English:

  • Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) level B2
  • PTE 51
  • IELTS 5.5; Reading and Writing must be at 5.5
  • or equivalent.

In case learners are going to have the study in a language other than English, but are assessed in English. Next Gates Education will decide what proof will be necessary to evidence individual student proficiency.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a method of assessment that considers whether learners can demonstrate that they can meet the assessment requirements for a unit through knowledge, understanding or skills they already possess and so not need to develop through a course of learning.

The student can provide evidence that meets with the requirements of all or part of the qualification which they are interested in. The evidence must be valid, reliable and match the learning outcomes and associated criteria of the qualification. Visit this link to read more about RPL.
