Dudley College of Technology celebrates vocational results again this year


25/08/2023

As we return to a sense of normality post Covid, our students have once again done us proud with BTEC level 2 qualifications achieving a pass rate of 92.5% showing a 4.6% increase from 21/22 academic year. With Art & Design and Business both achieving 100%.

Our C&G Technical qualifications at level 2 stormed in with a 100% pass rate, an increase of 10% from 21/22. Some of our outstanding technical programmes include:

  • Technical Certificate in Bricklaying, where 25% of learners achieved at least a distinction grade and 69% at least a merit grade.
  • Technical Certificate in Site Carpentry, 21% of learners achieved at least a distinction grade (71% at least a merit).
  • Technical Certificate in Plastering, 66.7% of learners achieved at least a merit grade.
  • Technical Certificate in Electrical Installation, 87.5% of learners achieved at least a merit grade.

In this academic year, for students who resat their GCSEs with us after failing at school, 63.2% of them achieved a grade 4 or above in their final grade for English and 22.7% of them achieved a grade 4 or above in their final grade for maths.

Nicole Mapolisa came to Dudley College after moving to the UK last year. She wanted to get her GCSEs in Maths and English so she would have the best opportunities to progress. She said:

“I’m so happy that my hard work has paid off! I’ve achieved GCSE English grade 6 – I never thought I would do that well. My tutors have been amazing, and I can’t thank them enough for their support. Next, I’m going to study Science Level 3 here at Dudley College, and then I want to progress to university to become either an Engineer or Doctor.” 

Neil Thomas, Chief Executive & Principal, commented:

“We have been at the heart of further education for more than a century and we are delighted to be helping our students achieve to their potential and start on their career journeys. Vocational learning continues to drive forward our place in society with many of our learners returning to us to continue their learning journey or going direct into employment.  

The results today prove that achievement comes in many forms including academic learning and hands-on training. We are proud to offer our local school leavers this balance and drive excellence across the Black Country”.

For all those collecting their GCSE results, whatever your grades we can support you through to your chosen career. Call into college this week and next week to secure your place. You can also visit our enrolment page for more information.
