Business BTEC Level 3 at Elthorne Park High School
The course will study a variety of different topics and units. These will cover areas such as marketing and advertising, finance, human resources and web site design. The aim is to give each student an understanding of the different functional areas of all businesses. This will then allow students to progress into university or employment with the ability to specialise in a preferred area.
Business Studies is a subject that is constantly on the move. Each day new ideas and organisations spring up and change the way we act and the way we think. The ability to understand the business world around you won’t just help you progress in business but will make you a more astute individual that is ready for new challenges.
During the two years you will study four core units:
- Business environment
- Business purposes
- Introduction of marketing and business communication
- On top of these you will study further units that are chosen specifically to match the skills of the group and the current business environment.
Each student is continually assessed through a variety of internally assessed coursework tasks, external exams and externally assessed coursework.
There is no set amount of tasks within one unit; however the amount of units is dictated by which award is chosen.
For a Subsidiary Diploma 6 units will be studied, for the Diploma 12 units will be studied and for an Extended Diploma 18 units will be studied.
The career possibilities for a Business student are unrestricted. Any organisation that involves people, technology and enterprise will need people with an overview of how departments interact with each other and how strategy can be built and implemented to support the achievement of aims.
It is not unusual for business students to be fast tracked to management positions in organisation because of their ability to understand the wider picture.
