Career-related studies.

At MPESA Foundation Academy, we offer a broad range of Career-related studies in the following BTEC Extended Diploma Courses;




                       •Creative Media



                       •Information Technology



Students complete at least two DP courses in any of that programme’s subject groups. DP courses provide and enhance the theoretical underpinnings and academic rigour of the CP.

The CP core components give context to the DP courses and the career-related study, drawing all aspects of the framework together. Through the CP core, students develop personal qualities and professional skills, as well as intellectual habits required for lifelong learning. 

Each school chooses the career-related study most suited to local conditions and the needs of its students. The career-related study must satisfy IB criteria for accreditation, assessment and quality assurance.
