Business Studies

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11)

At Key Stage 4 we offer two distinct business courses; firstly we have GCSE Business Studies and BTEC Level 1 / 2 Tech Award in Enterprise.

Studying GCSE Business Studies will engage a learner into understanding what is needed to start up a new business of their own and covers the important elements of marketing, customer focus and finance. They will also develop practical business skills such as problem solving, creative thinking and decision making which are of demand by employers.

Studying BTEC Enterprise will enable learners to engage in a stimulating introduction to the world of enterprise and skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur. They will cover all aspects of enterprise including planning, finance and how best to run a small business. They will also develop essential interpersonal skills and knowledge required by tomorrow’s employers.
