Business A level at Langley Park School for Girls

Course description

Business is concerned with a problem solving approach to business issues, helping you to understand the nature and workings of business and industry. Emphasis is placed on encouraging you to develop their ability to recognise, define, analyse and evaluate problems. Wherever possible you are placed in the role of real life decision makers. It will encourage learners to be inspired, motivated and challenged by following a broad, coherent, practical course of study.

The introductory modules are designed to lay the foundations for specialist study later in the course. Much of the teaching will be centred around an investigative case study approach as this forms the basis of assessment. Having established sound skills of analysis and evaluation during the first two modules, you then apply these in a global context in the second year of study. You will learn to take a more strategic view of business opportunities, problem and issues. You will also develop your numeric skills and learn to apply them in a range of business contexts e.g. profit and loss accounts.
