Curriculum Intent

At Key Stage 4 we offer two very popular courses that enable our students to explore the world of business and enterprise.

Our BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise course offers a hands-on approach to enable our students to experience what it means to set up and run a business enterprise. Our course helps develop the skills and knowledge that students need to be successful in today’s competitive global marketplace such as their ability to reflect, communicate and work as a team.

Our GCSE Business course offers students the opportunity to start exploring the world of business and to ask questions such as ‘what makes a business successful?’ And ‘how do you manage money and costs?’ Our students will then start to learn about business growth and other essential concepts regarding customers, issues, marketing, human resources etc.

Both of our courses provide opportunities for students to develop their communication, creativity, and problem solving skills whilst learning about the world of business using real global and local brands.
