Do you aspire to work within either the Business or Law industries? If so, then our exciting new study programme in business and law will give you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and skills across two related subjects. Not only will you be studying the core elements necessary to succeed at business but you will also incorporate two law units giving you a flavour of what it could be like working in the law industry. The purpose of this course is to allow students to have the opportunity of different progression routes allowing flexibility when applying for jobs or going on to higher education. This is a one-year study programme (six units which are equivalent to one and a half A levels) with an option upon successful completion of the course to progress onto the National Extended Diploma.
If you are aged 16-18, you will be enrolled on a study programme, which will include retaking GCSEs or undertaking Functional Skills in English and maths if you haven't already achieved a grade 4 or above. You will also be required to complete a work experience placement and an employability programme.
With the best of both subject areas, you will study units in: The English legal system, employment law for the law element of the course and the intricacies of exploring business, personal and business finance, developing a marketing campaign, managing an event for the business element. Recent cohorts have taken part in live projects with local employers thus linking their academic study to the workplace. These units will give you the skills and knowledge to either enter the workplace or progress onto our extended diploma in Business.
How will it be delivered?
During this course, you will complete a variety of assessment methods which include report writing, exams, PowerPoint presentations, discussions, live projects, and role-play workshops.
Entry onto this course requires five GCSEs at grade 4(C) or above including English and maths, 90% attendance in your last place of study or work and a reference.
Consideration will be given to all applicants over the age of 19 who do not hold formal English and maths qualifications.
Your next steps...
This course will give you a broad base of knowledge in both law and business-related topics and equates to one and a half A-levels. If you complete this course successfully you will have the opportunity to progress to the Business/Law National Extended Diploma. If you already have AS levels or another level 3 qualification and are working at distinction level there may be an opportunity to apply to the Higher National Diploma in Business Management at Leicester College or another university of your choice. Alternatively, you may decide to pursue an apprenticeship within the business/law sector.
