Business Studies

Curriculum Intent

A high-quality Business Studies course allows students the opportunity to explore real business issues and how businesses work. Students apply their knowledge and understanding to different business contexts ranging from small enterprises to large multinationals and businesses operating in local, national and global contexts. Students develop an understanding of how these contexts impact on business behaviour.

This will allow pupils to use business terminology to identify and explain business activity, apply business concepts to familiar and unfamiliar contexts, develop problem solving and decision-making skills relevant to business, investigate, analyse and evaluate business opportunities and issues.

It allows pupils to make justified decisions using both qualitative and quantitative data including its selection, interpretation, analysis and evaluation, and the application of appropriate quantitative skills.

A high-quality Business Studies course will prepare students to take up employment in business and entrepreneurship, either directly after achieving the qualification or via higher education at university or college
