This qualification is for learners 16 years old or over who want to study business. This qualification will provide learners with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the business environment and to focus on a specific aspect of business through applied learning. There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification, but, ideally, learners will typically have or be working towards GCSEs at grade 4/grade C or above including maths and English.

 

Single course - Learners will take 3 mandatory units on the single course, The business environment, Business Resources, Customers and Communication the first two are externally assessed examinations and last mandatory unit is coursework based.  A further 2 coursework units are optional units.

 

Double award course – Learners will cover 10 units of study covering a wide variety of topics.

 

The mandatory units will give learners an understanding of the wider external contexts in which businesses operate and of internal business functions and their interdependencies. The unit will allow them to appreciate how legal, financial, ethical and resource constraints can affect business behaviour and the influence that different stakeholders can have and how businesses must respond.

 

The optional units cover a wide range of topics to give learners the opportunity to take a unit that is relevant to a specific aspect of business; for example marketing, accounting, human resources or business planning. They will also develop transferable skills that are valued by HE and employers such as communication, planning, teamwork, research and analysis.

 

This qualification, combined with other qualifications, will provide learners with the skills, knowledge and understanding to progress into Higher Education (HE) on a business related programme such as Business, Business Management, Marketing, Business and Finance, Business and Economics and Accounting. It will also allow them to choose non business related degree programmes.

 

Learners would take one of the OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technicals in Business if they wish to progress onto a qualification in the same subject area at a higher level in Higher Education (HE). Normally, learners would choose one of the OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technicals in Business qualifications because they have an interest in the subject area and/or have successfully gained Level 2 qualifications in a similar or related subject.
