Future opportunities

BTEC Business is a course that when chosen with a good combination of subjects, could open many doors. Most employers and universities want to be assured that potential candidates are able to contextualise information and apply knowledge and theory.

The vocational aspect of the course lends itself to practical application where each unit is contextualised into current business scenarios; allowing students to develop their ‘real ‘ knowledge of business. Students go on to good universities having completing the course whereas others may use their grades to opt for an apprenticeship scheme.
