Theory and practical components
Theory component: BCITO will provide you with the teaching resources required to undertake the theory component for each Gateway programme package. Unit standards from National Certificates are used to provide your students with meaningful outcomes as they progress through the theory work.
Practical component: The practical sections are designed to replicate a BCITO apprentice’s record of work and assessment manual. It contains sections on the key practical activities that a student may be involved in, and a place to record what they have done when on their Gateway work placement.
