Students evaluate how environments, decisions and issues impact on business behaviour. They develop transferrable skills and the ability to communicate at all levels of an organisation. Students engage with our local and national business community, for example: LEGOLAND, Cadbury World, Honda, HITACHI, SAP, Young Enterprise, guest speakers, and local charities.

This qualification is linear, meaning that students will sit all their exams at the end of the course.

A level Business helps students to become good decision makers, learning essential managerial skills, alongside techniques to become an analytical problem solver. These skills are all highly sought after and valued in a wide range of careers.

All Sixth Form students are offered the opportunity to take part in Young Enterprise, a fantastic enrichment programme, which runs throughout one academic year. They find out what it’s really like to set up and run a business. Students make all the decisions about their company, from deciding on the company name and product to creating a business plan, managing the company finances, selling to the public at trade fairs to ultimately winding up the company and paying their taxes. All this takes place with the support of a volunteer Business Adviser who brings a wealth of business knowledge and expertise.
