Business BTEC Diploma at Solihull College & University Centre

Course description

Our Level 2 Business diploma is a course for those who want to learn the building blocks of business from the base level and develop their overall knowledge at a junior level in administration or retail, potentially looking to progress further on to a level 3 course.

Course content

Various units related to Business, such as:

- Business Communications
- Financial Forecasting
- Business Purposes
- Starting a Small business.

Entry requirements

Four GCSE's in academic subjects at grade D/3 or above including English or maths, as well as successful completion of diagnostic assessments.


To pass this qualification you will be assessed by a variety of methods, including:

- Role plays, presentations, written reports, displays, creative documents and posters.
- Written coursework will need to be produced for GCSE English or Functional Skills literacy.
- You sit exams for GCSE English and maths and tests for Functional Skills in numeracy and literacy.

Future opportunities

The majority of students who are successful on this course progress into work at a junior level or progress onto a level 3 course either in business or other vocational areas.

Further information

You need to bring pen, notebooks and folders to every lesson. It is expected that you will bring a memory stick to save and back up your work.

If you are between 16-18 there are no course fees, but you will need to pay a £45 contribution towards all vocational trips and activities.

Good levels of English and Maths are important for your success in your course, your chosen vocation and life. Throughout your course you will continue to develop your English and Maths skills in your vocational classes.

If you haven't achieved an A*/9 - C/4 grade in English or Maths at GCSE, or a Level 2 Functional Skill, you will also be working towards a qualification in English or Maths at a level that will enable you to progress towards these grades.
