BTEC Extended Diploma in Business (Level 3) at Barnfield Business and Enterprise Studio Academy
Year 12 and 13 continues the emphasis on enterprise.
All Sixth Form students study the Extended Diploma in Business, which is a very challenging and practical level 3 course-work based qualification, equivalent to three A-Levels. Units studied included specialist pathways in Marketing and Accounting to give students an insight to a wide range of areas in business. We work closely with the local business community and incorporate a number of guest speakers who share their expertise with the students.
Visits are also made to see the business in action. All students receive one-to-one mentoring sessions with local entrepreneurs and gain valuable employment experience working in a variety of organisations. They develop team working, leadership, customer service, communication and I.C.T. skills, as well as improving their job interview technique.
Our Sixth Form students also operate their own business, StudioB, selling greeting cards and small gifts which gives them the opportunity to put the business theory in practice. Successful completion of the course leads to a number of progression options including University, and Year 13 students are supported with their UCAS applications.
