The BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business is equivalent to three A-Levels. The programme aims to provide students with an in-depth and holistic understanding of key business principles such as in Marketing, Finance, HR, Law, Operations and Management; all these equipping the students with the skills necessary to succeed in employment or in higher education such as university.
The course has in total 13 subject-units that are studied across two years, these are then predominantly assessed through internally assessed assignments, four of these units are externally assessed. An integral part of the course is Industry Placement where students attend block placements in organisations to develop and build real business skills and their confidence.
This course is delivered through theory lectures, group seminars and external professional development (industry placement). The students will also have individual tutorials with their Year Tutor on a regular basis in order to monitor and track their progress. Guest speakers, trips and visits are used to enhance and enrich the learning experience of the students as much as possible.
