We are committed to teaching you not just about business but how to have a successful business career.

3 Good Reasons:

  1. Students rate the quality of teaching on their course as very high. Level 2 achievement rates 9% above the national average and Level 3 achievement rates at 91% (2016).
  2. Exciting and real-life events support the curriculum, such as working with local charities.
  3. Students enter competitions such as the Tenner Challenge, recently winning the LEAP awards. The contest is run by Young Enterprise where each participant is given £10 as capital to start a business and run it for a month.

"My teacher has been brilliant, and I wouldn’t have done so well on the course without her. She makes you work hard and she doesn’t spoon-feed anyone, but she always makes time for people.”

Lauren Hole, Level 3, Business

“Doing a BTEC was right for me because it’s a very practical way of learning; you study one subject in depth and you concentrate on written assignments rather than exams. Next year I’m planning to do an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing, so I’ll be able to keep learning but to gain a lot more experience too.”

Danny Thibeault, Year 2, Level 3 Business

We treat our students as adults and you will find yourself taking responsibility and pride in your assignments, behaviour and professional conduct and appearance. The Department is one of the longest established in the area with close links in the business community. You will not only learn the rules and skills of the business world, but will be given the tools to turn from a student into a professional.

You will be taught how to breathe life into a company by people who have worked in a number of different business organisations. We come from a variety of backgrounds but have one thing in common: we’re committed to turning you into the business professionals of the future.

We also regularly have guest speakers come in to talk to students about their experiences in the business world. Every one of our students will research, target, apply for, and spend at least a week doing meaningful work experience in any area they find exciting and relevant. You will also take part in organising events to support some of your units. This year the Level 3 students organised and ran Nescot’s Got Talent as part of their course, raising a lot of money for The Children’s Trust. The Department has excellent teaching rooms and IT suites where you will learn to use the latest software and presentation techniques.
