Business Studies – BTEC Subsidiary Diploma

BTEC Business Studies. Sixth Form. Prior Pursglove College. North East

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 course consists of four units. The three core units are Exploring Business, Developing a Marketing Campaign and Personal and Business Finance. In the second year there will be an optional unit that covers areas of business interest including market research, customer service and the English legal system to name just a few. 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.

Over the 2 years of the course, two units will be assessed through coursework, one through controlled assessment and one by an exam.
