BTEC Business involves considering the world around us through applying concepts to different business scenarios and following current affairs. This course provides a broad study of business, with the opportunity to extend the core knowledge through interesting units that focus on specific business areas, e.g. the business environment, business resources, marketing, communication, accounting and human resources.

You will complete a series of research tasks, which together will form a portfolio of work. These tasks involve conducting both primary and secondary research in order to solve a problem. Each of the assignments are completed individually within a controlled working environment. You will participate in discussions and group work whilst preparing for the examination unit.

BTEC Business supports progression into Higher Education following courses in Business, Law, Accounting, HR, Retail, Customer Service, Sales and Marketing.
