Lewisham Southwark College

Lewisham Southwark College have teamed up with JISC (UK higher education, further education and skills sectors’ not-for-profit organisation for digital services and solutions), to create a variety of interesting learning content to support BTEC Level 2 Technical Theatre apprentices (BTEC stands for a Business & Technology Education Council vocational qualification).

The resources cover Units 1 and 9 of the course and are a mixture of activities, videos and self-marking quizzes.
