Newly accredited AS And A level Business Specifications now available


After a series of consultations with Business teachers and members of the Higher Education sector we are proud to offer an engaging and dynamic set of specifications for teaching from September 2015.

The recently Ofqual accredited AS and A level specifications will introduce students to the business environment and stress the importance of entrepreneurial activity in creating business opportunities and sustaining long-term business growth.

The subject content enables students to investigate different types and sizes of organisations in various business sectors and environments, drawing on local, national and global contexts. Learners will develop a holistic understanding of business and enterprise and will be aware of the opportunities and threats of operating in a global marketplace.

Students will become familiar with current issues in business and be able to investigate, analyse and evaluate contemporary business opportunities and problems in a wide range of contexts, whilst recognising how businesses adapt to operate in a dynamic business environment.

Students have the opportunity to apply a number of analytical techniques, including decision-making models, investment appraisal tools and ratio analysis, to investigate business opportunities and problems to determine business strategy in a range of contexts.
