NCFE Level 2 Business & Enterprise At The FAR Academy at The Canterbury Academy

Course description

At The Canterbury Academy, students can join The FAR Academy’s business and enterprise course, which incorporates business skills within the skateboard culture.  The course provides the students with knowledge on how to set up a new business, market and produce their own product plan.  They will be supported in arranging and setting up their own skate events in which they would have their own stands and be able to sell the products they have made. They will also be encouraged to set up their own online shops in which again they will be able to sell their products.  As well as teaching key academic and vocational qualifications that are embedded into the existing school programmes, The Far Academy also supports students to achieve their core GCSE subjects. 

Course content

Units will include learning about the different types of businesses and their characteristics, marketing, finance, business planning and will include a practical element in which students will make and design their own skateboards from scratch.  The aim is for the students to set up their own business venture selling the products that they make during the course and to provide them with the skills to continue this for the future.
