ABOUT THE COURSE

This course provides you with business knowledge and theory, with an emphasis on economics, law, digital marketing or accounting and finance. The knowledge and supplementary skills you will acquire are those valued by employers.

Emphasis is on understanding why business skills and knowledge are important, particularly in a work related environment.

You will attend master classes and Q&A sessions with industry experts, visit companies and exhibitions, take part in enterprise activities and competitions and network with industry and former students about their experiences.

If you do not already hold grade 4 in GCSE English and Maths (or equivalent), you will also be able to study one of these as part of your programme.

WHAT WILL I STUDY?

This course consists of two separate qualifications. In your first year of study, you will work towards the Extended Certificate. Following successful completion of this qualification, you will be able to progress to the Diploma - this will give you the equivalent UCAS points to studying 2 A Levels.

Topics covered can include:

  • The Business Environment 
  • Business Resources 
  • Introduction to Marketing 
  • Business Communications 

Optional units will allow you to focus on your chosen specialism within business from economics, law, digital marketing or accounting and finance.

WHAT WILL I NEED?

You will need:

  • Five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English Language or Maths or an equivalent Level 2 qualification at Merit (and Functional Skills in English or Maths at Level 2/GCSE English Language or Maths at grade 4 or above)
  • A reference from your previous school/college

All applicants must have an interview to confirm that the course is suitable for them.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

Assessment is carried by completing an employer linked project, which embeds all units related to the course. The project is graded by achieving each task set out in the assignment brief. You will work closely with an employer brief which includes both theoretical and practical topics. This will give you both transferable practical skills and the theoretical ability to enhance your employability status with the purpose of recognising your ability to integrate the knowledge and skills gained on the course.

WHAT WILL IT COST?

If you will be aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31 August in the year you begin your course, and have been resident in the UK/EU/EEA for the past 3 years, it will be free. Some courses will have other costs associated, such as for materials and trips.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER?
