Applied Business at Hele's School
With business being an applied subject, this course is ideally suited to those students who excel at coursework; it requires research and independent study. Therefore, the most important attributes needed to take Applied Business are a positive attitude, self-motivation and organisation, a willingness to explore new ideas and an ability to communicate those ideas effectively to accept a challenge and take a risk. Critical and analytical skills are used to evaluate student's own work and that of others.
Two thirds of the course (66%) is assessed through coursework, with the remainder examined. As it is Applied Business that is being studied, the course is practical in nature. Students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience by studying real businesses through visits and guest speakers, and even writing a business plan for your own small business idea!
At least 5 A*-C including English and Maths.
There is no need to have studied Business at GCSE in order to take this course.
