How will I study?

Over the course of two years learners will complete three components which will be assessed internally and externally.

  • Assessment is through task–based assessments so learners can demonstrate their knowledge and skills in work–related scenarios.
  • Learners will explore, develop and apply their knowledge helping to develop key transferable skills such as research and data analysis to support their progression to further learning and the workplace.
  • The flexible approach to the content of each component means the course can be delivered in the best way for the learners.
  • This highly motivating, creative approach to teaching business and enterprise will encourage the students to explore the world of business and what makes or breaks an enterprise.
