Business and Enterprise

Block 2, Block 4
Assessment: Exam 100%
Head of Faculty: Mrs S. Bates

It is unlikely that you will have studied Business before taking this course but that does not matter. You might have an interest in business and want to start your own one day. Or you might be thinking about becoming a manager and running a large company. You may just have an interest in the business world and finding out about what it is that makes a successful company.

This course will cover all of this and more! What will I learn? Business Studies is about the world around us. On the course you will investigate business activity in the public and private sectors and learn about how the major types of business organisation are established, financed and run.

You will learn about the different functions within a business, including marketing, accounting, production and human resources and will also explore factors influencing business decision-making, such as laws and the economy. You will not only study business concepts and techniques but also enhance related skills such as numeracy and enquiry.

In Year 9, you will learn about business through a practical project ‘Kenny Subs’. The project will include market research, making products, controlling costs and promoting your business.

The Year 9 Business project topics include:

  • Business activity
  • Production
  • Marketing
  • Finance

At the end of Year 9 project, we will guide you onto the right pathway for you to ensure you maximise your academic progress.
