Course Overview

A-Level Business will demonstrate the interrelated nature of Business using different business models, theories and techniques to support analysis of the modern business environment, issues and situations that impact on business. Our content is designed to engage students through topics and scenarios that are relevant in today's society.

You will complete the AS Level in the first year and the A2 in the second to form a full A-Level.

You will study key contemporary developments such as digital technology, business ethics and globalisation topics. This will focus on the current and future business climate and you will learn how change affects business and develop techniques for setting and achieving corporate objectives so that you make the most of change.

Effective financial planning is a priority in business, and you'll discover ways to calculate, estimate and review costs, set budgets and assess future financial needs.

Although not an entry requirement, this course is particularly suitable for students who have studied GCSE Business Studies and have an interest in setting up their own business, as this specification builds on the concepts and skills they will have already learned.

The course can be taken in the following ways:
- Within KC Sixth with another two, possibly three A-Levels, tutorial and optional EPQ and Core maths
- As an 'add on' to a Full Time Level 3 Study Programme at the College, for example alongside a BTEC Extended Diploma
- As a stand-alone part-time course

If you would like to study a full-time programme of A-levels, please complete a full-time application form.

After Your Course

The majority of students go on to university, where Business represents the largest single subject in the university sector.

For potential employers, Business, with its broad study base and balance of numerical and written skills, is an ideal foundation for the recruitment of students for managerial positions and offers all the skills employers have recently said are lacking in new recruits.
