Business Department Vision
The Business department is driven to inspire pupils to understand the basic aspects of what is involved in business and how a business would run so they are able to have the confidence to aspire to set up and run their own business.
The Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Enterprise (603/1916/1), is for learners who wish to acquire skills through vocational contexts by studying the knowledge, behaviours and skills related to researching, setting up, running and reviewing an enterprise as part of their Key Stage 4 learning. The qualification enables learners to develop their technical skills such as market research skills, planning, promotional and financial skills using realistic work scenarios, and personal skills, (such as monitoring own performance, time management and problem solving) through a practical and skills based approach to learning and assessment.
