COURSE DESCRIPTION

This qualification takes a holistic approach to the subject,

it provides an opportunity to study the inter-related nature of

business using models, theories and techniques to support

analysis of contemporary business issues and situations. This

is an interesting and dynamic A Level course.

The content of the course has been designed to engage students

through topics and issues that are relevant in today’s society -

they will study key contemporary developments such as

digital technology and business ethics, and globalisation is

covered throughout the topics. Throughout the course we

will examine the key functional areas and how they work to

achieve overall organisational success.

Students will develop the knowledge and skills needed to

analyse data, think critically about issues and make informed

decisions – all skills that are needed for further study and

employment.

PROGRESSION

The A Level provides a good grounding in many subject

areas and provides a breadth which enables students to go on

to a range of degree courses including Business, Management,

Marketing, Accounting, Financial Management, Public Relations,

Sociology and Law. Due to the broad nature of business, this A

Level can be applied to many future careers.
