Business Studies – BTEC Subsidiary Diploma

This qualification equips you with a broad understanding of the essential knowledge and skills needed to help you begin or progress in a wide variety of business careers. You will have the opportunity to gain an insight into some of the most recognisable organisations in the UK: this is done through guest speakers, your own research and visits to businesses.

The four core units in the Subsidiary Diploma give you an introduction to the business environment, management of resources, marketing and communication – which are all fundamental to the success of business organisations. In the second year there will be optional units that cover areas of business interest including starting a small business and organising a business event, to name two possible units. All units delivered cover ‘live’ businesses and all assignments will be based on specific issues a number of well-known businesses face in our economy today.
