Future Careers:  

At Key Stage 4 we offer the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Enterprise (603/1916/1).  It is for learners who wish to acquire knowledge and skills through vocational contexts.  The qualification enables learners to develop their technical skills, such as market research skills, planning, promotional and financial skills using realistic work scenarios, and personal skills, (such as monitoring own performance, time management and problem solving) through a practical and skills-based approach to learning and assessment. Learners will acquire knowledge, understanding and skills to underpin their practical activities in assessment, which will complement their GCSEs. Studying Business / Enterprise during Key Stage 4 will open up future opportunities for study and also be able to shape your future career choices
