About the subject

Year 10 Overview

Cambridge National Business

 

The Cambridge Nationals in Business and Enterprise will offer opportunities to develop business skills demanded by employers in the UK today. They will enhance the learner’s readiness for the world of work by developing transferable skills such as planning, research and analysis, working with others and effective communication.

 

These qualifications will challenge all learners, including high attainers, by introducing them to demanding new materials and skills. They will encourage independence and creativity, and provide tasks that engage with more taxing aspects of the National Curriculum (including business planning, detailed self-assessment and analytical review skills).

 

These qualifications will assess the application of business skills through their practical use, and an understanding of business and enterprise through both practical and knowledge-based activities. They will provide learners with essential knowledge, transferable skills and tools to improve their learning in other subjects, with the aims of enhancing their employability when they leave education, contributing to their personal development and future economic well-being.
