83% of Moulton College students studying BTEC Diplomas achieved the equivalent of three or more A levels in 2011/12.
The Level 3 BTEC vocational Diplomas enable students to study from the age of 16 which means they do not have to stay on at school. Moulton College students achieved an average points score of 675.5, putting them ‘top of the tree’ for colleges in Northamptonshire and specialist land based colleges. The results also put Moulton College in the top 5% of similar colleges of further education nationally.

They receive a comprehensive and demanding programme of studies consisting of a BTEC or vocational Diploma, additional employer specific qualifications, functional skills in English and maths and experience of work, whilst studying over two years from age 16 to 18, leading to the award of ‘The Moulton College Certificate’.

They see these valuable technical, practical and work-related courses as being a significant stepping stone for young people into employment, further education or higher education”.
The Moulton College Certificate is highly regarded by employers, with nearly 90% of students progressing into employment, further education or higher education. This places 16 – 18 year olds in a strong position when competing for jobs and places at College or University.
