COURSE DESCRIPTION

ASSESSMENT A LEVEL - comprised of three exams: COMPONENT 1 Business One

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. 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.
