The Business Extended Certificate is designed to build your knowledge of this industry whilst improving your English or maths qualifications. During this one-year study programme, you will learn how to develop a marketing campaign, manage events, explore the business world and gain an overview of personal and business finance. Study a wide range of business subjects to open up your opportunities in employment and education. 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.


During the course, you will study a total of four units including business, developing a marketing plan and personal and business finance. The skills and knowledge you will gain from this course will help you progress onto the BTEC level 3 business diploma, enter the workplace or start an apprenticeship.

How will it be delivered?

There are a variety of assessment methods which include report writing, exams, PowerPoint presentations, discussions, live projects, and role-play assessment.

Entry requirements

Standard entry to this course requires references, 95% attendance at your last place of work or study, and four GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English and maths (or Functional Skills). A minimum of grade 4/5 for maths would be an advantage due to course content. Consideration will be given to all applicants over the age of 19 who hold equivalent English and maths qualifications.

Your next steps...

Upon completion of this course, you can continue to study with us on a BTEC level 3 diploma. This course will give you further insight and knowledge on business-related topics that can then be further pursued at either university or within the world of work. Alternatively, you may decide to pursue an apprenticeship or employment.
