Students are no longer expected to wear a face-covering in classrooms. We continue to ask you to wear one in the college's communal areas if you can do so.

Do you have what it takes to be the next Elon Musk, Mary Barra or Gabe Newell? Business is big in the UK with around 5.7m private sector businesses producing a turnover of £1.9 trillion each year. As James Dyson said, “Business is constantly changing, constantly evolving.”

Business is one of the most diverse subject areas with many students going on to have successful careers in management, retail, accountancy, and sales and marketing. In larger organisations, it’s not uncommon to start as an apprentice or trainee and work your way up. Students who go on to university or degree-level study could start out on graduate training programmes to get an all-round experience of a company.

Our tutors have widespread worldwide experience and deliver courses that are practical and relevant to today’s fast-changing business world. The fresh, modern and inspiring learning environment has excellent facilities to guarantee an enjoyable and informative course.

Students will also benefit from the strong relationships the college has built up with a wide range of thriving local businesses and entrepreneurs as well as support from organisations like Natwest. Work experience and placement opportunities are a key part of studying business, as are hearing talks from guest speakers and meeting industry experts on visits nationally and abroad.

There is a wide range of part-time business courses available, plus degree-level study, apprenticeships (including higher-level apprenticeship) options at Kendal College.

We also run a range of professional business services courses, including accounting and HR!

We go on lots of trips and have the opportunity to go out on work placement, this has been really valuable to me in developing new skills and learning about the industry in our area. I’m keeping my options open between university, apprenticeships and employment, the course has prepared me for all available options. I now have a place to study Politics at Leeds University.
