Business at Clyst Vale Community College

Course description

Credit crunch, recession, boom, bust - these are all words that you hear on a day-to-day basis, but what do they mean? How does it affect me? My family? The country? If you have an enquiring mind and an interest in world events and current affairs, then this is the course for you.

You will cover six units over the two years. Four units are mandatory and two are options that we can choose.
The four core units give you an introduction to and understanding of the business environment, management ofresources, marketing and communication - all fundamental to the success of business organisations. In short, you will gain specialist knowledge that will help you to understand what businesses are, how they are organised and run, and how they sell their products. If you choose to do just 1 year, then you can. You will obtain an AS equivalent qualification called ‘BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Business’

Entry requirements

You should have a grade C in English Language. You do not need to have studied Business before, but a background in Business Studies, together with a good general knowledge will help.
