Applied Business GCSE (Double Award) at Samuel Lister Academy
This is a very interesting course and is suitable for anyone at all. You will learn about all aspects of businesses and will be relevant at some point throughout your career - whatever that may be!
You will be learning about all aspects of business throughout the two years of study in Year 10/11. The main topics that you will learn about are:
- People who work within business
- Job Roles
- Customer Service
- How to set up a business
All aspects of the course are very much a part of day to day running of any business, be it an international airport or the local fish and chip shop!
There are no entry requirements for Business Studies. You will choose to do this course as one of your options at the end of year 9. If you do decide to take the course, you can progress further and do A Level Business where you will learn even more in-depth about how businesses run and the people involved.
In Year 11, whilst learning the relevant subjects you will be going on a trip to see behind the scenes at Manchester Airport. You will be given the low down of how the airport runs in one of their in-house seminars and then you will go on a tour around the airport and its grounds. This has been a great success in past years and all students have a great time! they also find it a great help when it comes to actually seeing how a business is run rather that just reading case studies from a textbook.
Progression to further study (please see 16-19 opportunities) or employment.
For further information, please contact Mrs Balderson at Aire Valley School.
