BTEC Music

Curriculum Overview

The BTEC Level 2 Music Award has been chosen for the students at St Bernadette Secondary School as it equips them with the knowledge and skills to be successful in either further study or work. The range of taught content is applicable to the Music Industry and provides a knowledge base for students to continue on to A-Level, undertake apprenticeships or a Level 3 qualification. 

How will I be assessed?

You will carry out tasks/assignments throughout the course. Your teacher will mark these, and so you will receive feedback as to how you are getting on. For the assessment for Unit 1 which is sent away to be marked, you will be able to draw on the knowledge, skills and understanding you have developed in the qualification as a whole.

You will complete and be assessed on the following units:

  • Unit 1: The Music Industry - This is an external assessment and you will sit a written examination in January of year 11.
  • Unit 2: Managing a Music Product - This is an internal assessment. You will be given an assignment brief where you will plan, organise, run and reflect upon the success of a Music Concert.
  • Unit 4: Music Composition - This is an internal assessment. You will be given an assignment brief where you will plan, create and reflect upon a composition portfolio.
  • Unit 5: Musical Performance - This is an internal assessment. You will be given an assignment brief where you will plan, create and reflect upon a performance portfolio.
