BTEC Level 2 Certificate

Business Studies

What is BTEC Level 2 Business Studies?

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.

If you want a great foundation to build on before you embark on the Level 3 BTEC course, the Level 2 Certificate in Business 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 necessary.

What Will You Study?

You will complete seven units in total. Two of these units are examined (Finance and Marketing). The remainder of the units form a portfolio of work that is internally assessed. Key areas include business finance, marketing, customer service, branding, communication and website design.

Students will also have the opportunity to use their enterprise skills to complete a unit which focuses on starting a small business. On completion of the course, students will have an insight into the business world as well as being more prepared for the world of work or further study.

What Next?

We love it when our students progress on to the Level 3 BTEC courses we offer. You may want to carry on with your Business Studies, but there is nothing to stop you looking at the other BTEC courses we offer within the College. Business apprenticeships are another avenue to explore after completion of this Level 2 qualification.
