If you enjoy watching The Apprentice and Dragon’s Den, if you like to find out what makes things happen in business, if you want to start up or manage a business or social enterprise or have a career in finance this is a fantastic course for you to choose.

Whether you are heading for self-employment or big business, you will develop a range of business skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes, essential for successful performance in business. You will have the foundation to go on to Degree level study, an Apprenticeship or into the workplace with knowledge of planning a marketing campaign, examining different types of business models along with current issues, personal and business finance, international business.

There are 2 pathways at Level 3. Firstly, if you have achieved Grade 4 and above in Maths and English GCSE and want to progress to University, you will be assessed with exams at the end of the units. The second pathway is an excellent route straight into a job or Apprenticeship if you didn’t achieve a Level 4 in Maths or English (a resit will be included in your study programme) and there are no exams as this pathway is coursework based.
