Business Studies is an exciting option to take at KS4. What did you see when you turned on the TV today? Listening to the radio? Driving to school? Walking into your local shop? Business is all around you. Businesses compete for your custom and try to persuade you to be brand loyal.
Business Studies will introduce the technical language of business and industry and encourage you to use your analytical and evaluative skills in solving business problems and making crucial decisions.
Who are the courses aimed at?
As an optional unit, students will not be required to have any prior knowledge, only the desire to excel in a new subject area. Many students who study Business at GCSE continue their study into the Sixth Form and go on to university to higher education. This course of study also applies itself for student to be better equipped to enter the world of work or to secure a place on an apprenticeship scheme.
