Offering Alternative Pathways for Vocationally Inclined Students.
At Sunmarke, we believe that every child is unique and so is the method of learning. Just as some children do a great job with classroom learning there are others who excel in a hands-on learning. As a Positive Education school, we believe that learning should be fun and not daunting, as well as offering each child equal opportunities for attaining their goals in higher education and employment at the workplace.
Beginning in the academic year 2017-18, Sunmarke offers 2 year BTEC programmes to students from Year 10 to Year 11 and from Year 12 to Year 13, giving them an opportunity to develop their vocational skills through a practical approach and preparing them for future career paths.
Chosen by over 1 million learners every year, BTEC programmes are career-based qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to higher education or go straight into employment.
The BTEC programme combines classroom learning with a range of practical knowledge and skills to help students prepare for, and progress in, their chosen path. A hands-on approach of practical project work, vocation-related activities, along with classroom teaching helps students develop behavioural, teamwork, creative thinking and presentation skills among others.
Sunmarke is a Positive Education (PosEd) School where outstanding teaching underpinned by the science of Positive Psychology defines our school culture, so children flourish learning the skills for ‘Academics & Achievement’ and ‘Character development & Wellbeing’. We cultivate a sense of purpose, positive emotions and supportive relationships to create happier, healthier and more successful individuals.
