A GCSE in Business helps students develop economic awareness and provides a fundamental understanding of how businesses work.

In Year 10, we investigate small businesses, the skills required to become a successful entrepreneur and the mechanics of setting up in business. We explore the creative as well as the financial skills required and consider what external factors could influence the success of a business. 

In Year 11 we consider how to build a business beyond the start-up phase with a particular focus on operations, marketing, finance and human resources. 

This qualification is a great foundation for an A Level in either Business Studies or Economics.
