Business BTEC Level 3 at Northgate High School

Course description

In the first year you will have two main units, both of which need successfully completing to pass the qualification. Unit 1 involves a coursework assignment investigating local, national and international businesses, whereas Unit 2 is an examined unit on marketing campaigns. In the second year, students are required to complete two further units on personal and business finance, then recruitment and selection.

Course content

Learning in lessons is varied but due to the nature of the assessment there is a lot of coursework to be completed. Students will use the 5 R’s independent learning support to help complete their 5 hours per week private study. There are two weekly extra Business & Economics sessions to support students.

Entry requirements

Subject specific entry requirements: GCSE grade 4 in Mathematics or English Language.

Future opportunities

The BTEC Business qualification is nationally recognised and accepted by employers as well as universities. Note: This subject cannot be taken with A Level Business Studies, or A Level Accounting due to the large overlap between them.
