The qualification gives learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that underpin the business sector that will prepare them for further study or training. This includes the opportunity for learners to choose two units from a selection of options to supplement the mandatory units which reflect the key topics in business:
- Business environments
- International business
- Exploring Business
- Managing an Event
- International Business
- Recruitment and Selection Process
- Digital Marketing
Exam Based Units:
- Exploring a Marketing Campaign
- Personal and Business Finance
- Principles of Management
How will I be assessed?
The qualification is equivalent in size to two A Levels, and it has been designed as a full two-year programme.
There are 8 units that will be required to be completed at the end of the 2 years. 3 of these are externally assessed (through exams), and the remaining 5 units are internally assessed (coursework).
The qualification is recognised by higher education institutions as fully meeting admission requirements to many relevant courses in a variety of areas in the business sector, as single or joint programmes at degree, foundation degree or HND level. When studied with other qualifications in the study programme, learners can progress to higher education on combined courses. Learners should always check the entry requirements for degree programmes with the specific higher education providers. After this qualification, learners can progress directly to employment, however it is likely that many will do so via higher study. Areas of employment include junior business roles in marketing, administration, finance, events management, HR, marketing and other related areas in the business sector, including higher apprenticeships.
