BTEC Business

What will I study?
Do you have the drive and ambition to manage a business, or ooze enthusiasm to become an entrepreneur? Are you creative enough to market worldwide products or organised enough to manage a business’s finances? If so, then a course in business may the right option for you. A business course at CCW will guide you to understand the ins and out of businesses, exploring how different factors can test a business and push them to succeed. You will create a marketing campaign for a large business of your choice, that someday may become a reality, and work with worldwide companies to investigate their finances. The units that you will cover are the core to any successful business and, one day, you could be the successful business that students are investigating. This course encourages independent learning, and with one-one support, passionate teachers and real business scenarios, you will develop the skills and knowledge to become successful in any work place.

What do students do afterwards?
Many business students guarantee themselves a place at university by studying a business course. A Level 3 qualification in business is recognised in most universities. If university is not the place for you then there is always the option of a higher apprenticeship. BTEC business students have, in the past, landed themselves an apprenticeship in top businesses, such as KPMG and PWC, and more and more businesses are taking on apprentices who have a business background.

How will I be assessed?
Units 1 and 22 – internally assessed (coursework); Units 2 and 3 – externally assessed (exam).
