Business Level 2 - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This course is for any student who has an interest in business and events management that they would like to further develop into career opportunities. On the course, there is an emphasis on students becoming work ready, as business skills and qualifications are more important than ever in today’s dynamic modern economy.

If you have a passion for business and are a budding entrepreneur, then this is the course for you. Students will prepare for the workplace by developing marketing and entrepreneurial skills.

We recognise that not everyone will leave school ready or confident enough to undertake a Level 3 qualification, and some may need time to develop their English and maths, communication and problem- solving skills.

This programme is a challenging fast-track course delivered over one year to help you prepare for the T Level in Business qualification. It includes a mix of content from the T Level such as creating a business portfolio, work experience and supports you in achieving your English and maths GCSE qualifications if you haven’t already.

The breadth of content will ensure you are able to apply your skills in a variety of environments for different purposes. You will be assessed through practical coursework and exam-assessed content.

This qualification includes a mixture of classroom learning and on-the-job experience during a substantial industry placement.

Subjects may include:

  • Communication skills for work
  • Understanding business organisations
  • Promoting products and services
  • Understanding finance in a business context
  • Digital skills for work.

Assessment Methods

Assessment is through a variety of methods including exams, practical projects set by employers, assignments, case studies, and presentations. You may need to compile a portfolio of evidence to present at the end of the course for assessment purposes. This qualification includes a mixture of classroom learning and on-the-job experience during a substantial industry placement.

Progression Options

I’ve learned so much and the tutors helped me work out what I’d like to do after College. When I complete my course I’m going to Nottingham Trent University to studying International Business with a language.
