This course will give you a thorough grounding in business policies, theories and practices.
You will also undertake a core study programme, which is designed to ensure you have fundamental skills in IT, numeracy and literacy for the purpose of gaining entry into higher education.
If you have an up to date level 2 course (obtained within the last three years) and evidence of level 2 literacy and numeracy then you will be able to take part on the course.
However, as most of our students have been out of education for the last few years, every student is given an initial assessment in literacy and numeracy which will act as evidence for entry. You will take these tests before you start the course and will need to achieve level 2 in both of them.
If you do not meet the criteria then the college has a range of alternative programmes open to you.
You’ll learn about how businesses develop their products, set their prices, market them and get the best use from of their financial and human resources.
