Sixth Form College
This Business course can be mixed with the Level 3 IT BTEC Subsidiary Diploma and possibly an A Level course of your choice. This allows for a flexible and individualised programme of study. The full level 3 Diploma is the equivalent of two A Levels. This course will develop your understanding of the business world, finance and trading and provide you with an appreciation of the many different career options within Business, including the energy industries, digital technologies, supermarkets, finance, tourism and many more. These industries are all employment sectors that require a foundation in Business Studies. This course also provides you with essential information for starting your own business.
If you are looking for an advanced course, which will give you the opportunity to develop essential work-related skills, then the BTEC Level 3 course in Business could be for you. To enhance your learning we interact with a variety of organisations that visit the College and welcome us into their workplaces. The course lasts for two years and is vocational in nature, which means that it is coursework-based and all assignments relate to real aspects of work. We will also develop your knowledge and understanding of the way in which businesses are organised, financed and operated within local, national and international contexts. The course will suit students who have good writing skills and enjoy carrying out independent research.
You will cover a wide range of business topics, including recruitment, finance, marketing, business development and business resources.
Business Studies students will enjoy a range of trips to a variety of organisations as well as benefit from visiting speakers. You will be working in excellent facilities and will work closely with the Chamber of Commerce and other experts to develop your entrepreneurial skills.
You will need to meet the standard college entry criteria for BTEC level 3 qualifications.
Business Studies will allow you to go to university to study a wide range of subjects. Careers in finance, accounting, marketing and other business-related areas are possibilities for students who have studied this subject.
