Business at YARM SCHOOL

Course description

A Level Business will give students an exciting insight into the dynamic world of business. It is not just a theoretical subject, it is about real life. This combination of academic challenge and practical focus makes the prospect of studying A Level Business highly appealing. Students will learn about businesses and the way they operate in today’s society. They will investigate problems which real businesses are currently facing and use their initiative to develop possible solutions. At the heart of the subject will be its relevance to the modern world; its topicality will engage students and facilitate an understanding of their role in society. The stimulating specification content will encourage them to develop their skills as independent learners, critical thinkers and decision-makers – all personal assets that can make them stand out as they progress to higher education and/or the workplace. History, Geography, Economics, Mathematics and the Sciences can be taught cohesively and also complement the study of Business. The study of any of these subjects can stand students in a good position to progress to higher education and employment.

Entry requirements
