BTEC Level 2 Business Studies at Stepney Green Maths and Computing College

Course description

The Edexcel BTEC level 2 First Award has been designed to provide an engaging and stimulating introduction to the world of business. The core units cover the essential knowledge and skills required in the business sector. The optional units specialise cover the day to day running of a business including banding, sales and recruitment.

This course provides a good foundation for learners in post-16 education, or to entry level job roles within the sector. Achievement at level 2 provides a suitable foundation for further study within the sector through progression on to other vocational qualifications at level 3, such as the Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Nationals in Business.

The underpinning knowledge and practical and vocational skills learnt will also enhance and support the progression to a relevant competency-based course, such as the Edexcel BTEC NVQ Level 2 in either Business Administration or Team Leading, or the Edexcel BTEC NVQ Level 3 in either Business Administration or Management, or their corresponding apprenticeships.  Alternatively learners may also consider progression to general qualifications such as GCSE Business or GCSE Applied Business.

Learners must complete the two core units, and a choice of optional units to reach a total of 120 GLH.
