Business Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma/120 Credit Diploma at Sandwell College
The Subsidiary Diploma in Business is an ideal programme for school leavers who wish to gain the equivalent of one A level. It is a practical, work-related course, focusing on the development of a range of specialist skills.
This course is made up of 6 units - four mandatory core units that everyone takes, and two specialist units, so you can study particular areas in more depth. The four core units are: The Business Environment, Business Resources, Introduction to Marketing, and Business Communication.
There will also be an opportunity to complete a work experience placement.
Applicants should have either:
BTEC First Qualifications (merit grades) in related subjects backed by GCSE English and Maths grade A*- C, or
at least 4 GCSEs at grades A*- C including GCSE English and Maths.
All units are assessed and graded using a variety of work based assessment methods and an overall grade for the qualification is awarded.
You may progress to the 120 Credit Diploma in Business which is equivalent to 2 A levels. This course awards UCAS points, which allow you to apply to Higher Education (university). In addition, Sandwell College offers the Higher National Diploma (HND) and Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Business and, in association with the University of Wolverhampton, the Foundation Degree in Business Management.
