The NCFE Level ½ Technical Award in Business and Enterprise is appropriate for learners who are looking to develop a significant core of knowledge and understanding in business and enterprise and how to apply their learning. It is an important subject as it supports local community needs, along with inspiring young people to become self-employed. Further, it will prepare students for higher education, apprenticeships and the world of work.
This qualification has been designed to sit alongside the requirements of core GCSE subjects and is appropriate for learners who are motivated and challenged by learning through hands-on experiences and through content which is concrete and directly related to those experiences.
It is distinct from GCSE Business Studies, as it encourages the learner to use knowledge and practical enterprise tools to prepare them for business.
In Business, we are committed to fulfilling the whole school Literacy drivers. Including, improving reading comprehension and vocabulary enhancement.
