Throughout the year, students cover a range of topics taken from BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise and the GCSE Business programmes of studies, providing them with an understanding of a broad range of business activities. The main area of focus are on business in the real world, with a number of topics supporting the learning including: purpose and nature of business, business ownership, setting business aims and objectives, stakeholders, business location, business planning and expanding a business. There are lots of opportunity for students to take on business related tasks, such as designing a new business idea and presenting this in front of the ‘dragons’.
