Business Studies A Level at The Knights Templar School
This course will be of great value to those considering careers in commerce or industry but it is by no means designed exclusively for them. Its aim is to study the objectives of business organisations and to see how they are put into practice given the many difficulties and constraints that exist within firms and the pressures that affect firms from outside.
Our links with Industry also contribute to this course and this subject should be of great interest to most students and is a good complement to any subject combination. It includes study of such areas as Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Operations Management, External Influences and Objectives and Strategy.
This would be a valuable qualification for those going on to study any of the wide variety of business related degrees or HNDs that are available. It is also an academic qualification in its own right which will support applicants wishing to study in any subject area. Students may also find it a valuable addition to their CV if their career, at some stage, becomes involved with business of any kind – which could well be the case for most of them.
It is not necessary to have taken GCSE Business Studies as the course assumes no prior knowledge, although for those who have taken it we ask for a Grade B, and for them, of course, the workload will be somewhat lighter. Otherwise we expect good overall grades, with B’s in Mathematics and English.
