Why study Business?
Business related courses are for students with inquisitive minds who want to learn how small businesses are set up and what it takes for an entrepreneur to be successful, how businesses are run and how they grow into multinational companies. Choosing Business allows students to specialise in one of three GCSEs which best suits their interests and needs. At the end of the course a student will be awarded one of the following GCSEs.
GCSE Business Studies
You will learn about how small businesses are developed and discover how businesses promote themselves and keep their customers happy. You will learn how businesses manage both their finances and the people who work for them.
GCSE in Business Communications
You will understand how important effective communication is to any business, learn what communication is and the different ways businesses communicate with people inside and outside the business.
GCSE Business and Economics
You will find out how to think like an economist and learn how the economy functions, the government’s role in the economy and its impact on business. You will also examine what causes businesses to fail and how businesses grow. You will study many issues within the world of business such as inequality. It is our intention to always give students their first choice of specialism but this is not always possible. Regardless of the specialism taken, the assessment details remain the same as. We welcome students onto our range of A Level routes from every GCSE specialism.
