This course has been designed to provide an engaging and stimulating introduction into the world of business. It provides a great introduction to business for learners entering post-16 education.

Course content

You will study 4 units in total which will equate to a Level 2 First Award in Business. This is the equivalent of 1 GCSE. There are two core units: Enterprise in the Business World and Finance for Business. In these units you will have the opportunity to develop the key enterprise and financial skills and knowledge necessary to enable you to understand how businesses recognise opportunities, and build on them to succeed. You will also learn about how a business makes and manages its money and plans for the future. You will then embark on two specialist units: Promoting a Brand and Principles of Customer Service. The course is assessed by one external examination (Finance for Business) and three internally assessed units which can vary in forms from written assignments to work experience.
