Delivered in classroom and study centres learners are required to research organisations and apply business theory and skills to case study material. Staff have a background in business and extend this experience through continuous professional development and industry links. Visits, speakers and a range of activities help to simulate real life business environments. Assessment is by exams in January and June.

Excellent attendance along with a genuine interest in business organisations is vital.
