Who is it for?
This exciting Level 2 qualification is designed to provide specialist work-related qualifications in a range of sectors including Customer Service, Business Administration, Retail, Sales and Finance. It gives students the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare for employment. The qualification also provide career development opportunities for those already in work. This programme of study is ideally suited to all those wishing to pursue a career within business, either progressing straight into employment or continuing in Further Education and on to High Education.
It is important to have a lively and inquiring mind, an interest in business and a willingness to explore new ideas. An ability to communicate your ideas effectively and demonstrate good organisational skills are also important. If you do not have these skills on joining college then we will help you gain them.

You will need a minimum of three GCSEs at grade 3 or above, preferably, including English and Maths.

I liked the small business planning part of the course most of all. We were taught the basics of how to start your own business up and the financial planning that goes into that, so the course has given me ideas about how I could organise my own business and move forward in the right direction. My mum runs her own small catering business and I want to start a similar business of my own when I finish college.
