The BTEC Business programme has been designed to prepare students for the fast-paced and constantly evolving world of business, ensuring you have the commercial knowledge and skills you need to work in business or establish your own enterprise.
It is particularly suited to those who want a more practical learning experience and it can be taken alongside or instead of A-Levels.
New specification from September 2020
Our BTEC Business programme will be changing to follow a new specification from September 2020. Whereas we have traditionally offered an exam-free programme, the new specification will include a small exam element in addition to coursework. Please find details of this change in the course pages linked below.
