WHAT IS THE NOTRE DAME PATHWAY?
The Notre Dame Pathway is designed to help students boost their GCSE profile after year 11 by studying level 2 BTEC/ CTEC qualifications and retaking GCSE English Language or GCSE Maths if required. Students on the pathway become level 2 students for one year before progressing to a level 3 study programme at Notre Dame.
To take a BTEC/CTEC level 2 qualification, you should have at least four GCSEs at grade 3 or equivalent qualifications, including at least a grade 4 in GCSE English Language or GCSE Maths. Students who haven’t already achieved a minimum of grade 4 in either GCSE English Language and Maths will continue to work towards this.
