BTEC Business Studies at Chelmer Valley High School

Course description

If you study Business studies you’ll investigate real businesses and the global and changing world context they operate in. You’ll learn the practicalities, such as the numbers behind the business, but also why some succeed when others fail. For example, life has been tough for firms of late, but why have some, such as Apple, thrived during the recent recession? There are also really useful analytical tools that can be used to understand any business. Studying Business may not necessarily make students rich but it will give them a good understanding of how businesses work and how they fit with the wider environment.

Course content

The units covered across the Certificate and Subsidiary Diploma include: Mandatory units on Business Resources, Marketing and Communication with potential study in such diverse areas as Project Management, Managing Events, Creative Product Promotion, Recruitment & Selection, Business Law and Internet Marketing.
