Open Day - Saturday 13th October 10am - 1pm
If you want a great foundation to build on before you embark on the Level 3 BTEC course, the BTEC First Certificate gives you the opportunity to develop sound knowledge and skills in the subject, whilst also improving GCSE grades in Maths and/or English alongside, if needed.
You will get an introduction to all the key areas that make a business tick. This is done in a highly practical way, with trips and visits arranged to make your studies come to life. You will really enjoy this course if you prefer to work at your own pace and set your own targets.
You will complete 12 units to for a portfolio of work that is internally assessed. Key areas include marketing, customer care, business organisations, enterprise skills and business finance. When you complete the course you come out with an insight into the world of work and be prepared for further study.
The enrichment opportunities linked to the BTEC Business Studies course are vast, with lots of fantastic trips and activities to become involved with. Each year students are offered the chance to take part in a team building day at Rock and River as well as leadership development in the Lake District. We also offer trips to the Chill Factore in Manchester to learn about marketing such a large leisure facility, as well as a retail visit to the Liverpool One shopping centre.
We love it when our students progress to the level 3 BTEC courses! You may want to carry on your business studies, but there is nothing to stop you looking at the other BTEC courses we offer within the college.
At least four 3’s at GCSE, including at least a 4 in GCSE English Language or Maths.
