BTEC Business

This is a practical course which will give you the skills for the world of work and help you to add value to business activities in any organisation. You will complete projects and assignments based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. The Extended Certificate is for learners who are interested in learning about the business sector alongside other fields of study, with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses, not necessarily in business-related subjects.

You will study three mandatory core topics including: Exploring Business, Developing a Marketing Campaign, Personal and Business Finance. Two of these units are externally assessed with one based on a pre-released synopsis.  One unit will be internally assessed. 

You will also have the opportunity to study one optional unit covering a range of topics which will be internally assessed.

Why Study BTEC Business
While it is obvious that those planning on working in most industries and prospective entrepreneurs should study business, all people should learn as much about business operations as possible. This includes those in the scientific, medical, education and government sectors, along with those who are simply consumers of products and services. Becoming knowledgeable about how businesses operate helps increase your competitiveness in the job market and to understand how the businesses and governments drive our economies.
