Business Studies (BTEC Level 2) at Hedingham School and Sixth Form

Course description

This qualification has been developed to encourage the development of knowledge and skills relevant to the business world through practical participation in a range of vocational business activities. It gives learners a wider understanding and appreciation of the broad range of business specialisms and encourages learners to develop their people, communication, planning and teamworking skills.

In the two core units, learners will have the opportunity to develop the key enterprise and financial skills and knowledge necessary to enable them to understand how businesses recognise opportunities, and build on them to succeed. Learners will understand how a business makes and manages its money, and plans for the future.

Optional units, covering branding and promotion, customer service, sales, retail business, recruitment and career development, and business support, provide learners with the opportunity to develop the skills to progress to other vocational qualifications.

This could also provide a starting point of a route into employment in many of the diverse areas of business, including roles in specialist areas such as marketing, finance, customer service or human resources in large businesses, or a more generic role in a small, local business.
