Applied A Level Business

This specification in business provides candidates with a broad introduction to the business sector and encourages students to develop skills, knowledge and understanding in realistic business contexts, such as discovering the problems and opportunities faced by local businesses and/or organising an enterprise activity. It provides opportunities for students to develop sufficient depth of understanding to inform their choices between further study or training.

Students will be encouraged to acquire the following range of skills through the study of realistic business contexts:

• practical skills: personal organisation and time management; ICT skills

• presentational skills: producing a business report; making an oral presentation

• personal skills: initiative; creativity; perseverance; willingness to learn and progress

• interpersonal skills: working in teams; discussing problems or issues; leading a team

• cognitive skills: investigative and research skills; problem solving; decision-making; using theory to analyse a real organisation; planning a project.

 At A/S level unit 1 and unit 2 are assignment based and involve the study of two local businesses. This allows you to apply your knowledge in a very practical way and you will be assessed as you learn. You are therefore required to work closely with your teacher and you have the benefit of regular support and feedback on your progress. The marks from these two units make up two thirds of your final A/S grade.

The third unit concentrates on business finance and this is assessed by an examination in the summer term.
