This business study programme develops skills that support learners who are interested in a pathway to university. The study programme prepares learners for a range of skills within the Business industry and higher education courses.

Your learning will include private study, preparation for assessment and undertaking assessment when not under supervision, such as preparatory reading, revision and independent research.

Course description

The study programme brings together knowledge and understanding (the cognitive domain) with practical and technical skills (the psychomotor domain). This is achieved through performing vocational tasks that encourage the development of appropriate vocational behaviours (the affective domain) and transferable skills.

Transferable skills are those such as communication, teamwork, research and analysis, which are valued in both higher education and the workplace.

Delivery consists of:

  • Business Decision Making
  • Principles of Management
  • International Business
  • Final Accounts for Public Limited Companies
  • Market Research
  • Pitching for New Business
  • Recording Financial Transactions

As part of the programme, you will conduct a two-week work placement in a business environment. This will allow you to apply your theoretical knowledge into a practical work setting. Assignments will also be completed in relation to your work placement.
