Level 3 Business
Mon Sep 07 2020
Day / Time
Level 3 Business is designed for people who are passionate about business skills and want to develop a range of personal skills and attitudes essential for successful performance in working life. More than just a qualification, this study programme includes all the ingredients to make you the best you can be, to give you an edge in the jobs market or if you’re moving onto further study. It is personal to you and is made up of a range of activities.
The majority of time will be spent on the qualification you choose to study and will be a mix of practical work and theory, all shaped around the technical skills and knowledge that employers are looking for. The rest of your time will be spent in English and maths, work experience, tutorials and reviews along with a range of other activities designed to boost your CV in some way.
What will I study?
This course is split into three projects per year where you will develop your knowledge to successfully work on real life industry briefs that will enable you to become both employable and innovative.
Topics covered include:
- Business enterprise
- Human resources
- Event management
You will be given the opportunity to take part in a 'Dragon's Den' style event and work on event organisation and management for external partners. You will also have access to the college's tutorial programme which equips you for the world outside of college through money management training, visits to employers, help with job hunting, interviews and confidence building.
The course has a different approach to it – you may not study a unit at a time – you work on employer-led projects. These projects are run in conjunction with local employers who set actual briefs for you to work on and show you what it's really like to work in the industry. As well as this 41% (2 out of 6 units) of the course is externally assessed. You will learn industry standard techniques and skills to make you stand out from the crowd using state of the art equipment and gadgets in dedicated business classrooms.
Tutorial and Reviews
This is our opportunity to support you, to set your targets, keep you on
track and make sure you achieve what you’re capable of.
You'll also be part of an Employer Mentoring Scheme where you will work with a mentor from a local business to help improve your skills further. The possibilities with this scheme are endless. Past students have been given real-life projects to work on, visited their mentors at work and been given opportunities to showcase their work.
We want you to be job ready when you leave us and able to put what you have learnt into practice in the workplace. Relevant and high quality work experience placements, employer mentoring, commercial and vocational projects will help you to do this and are an important part of your study programme. Plus make an impression on an employer and who knows where that could lead.
