Practical Vs Theory
The BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business is a two-year programme consisting of thirteen units, seven of which are mandatory and four externally assessed units, the rest are optional units which allows you to progress onto a Degree course, or to provide you with skills to find employment or a higher apprenticeship. Students choosing to study this course are taught by experienced lecturers, often specialists in their field. This qualification is equivalent in value for UCAS of 3 ‘A Levels’.
This course is best suited to those looking to develop business and entrepreneurial skills. The range of topics the course covers includes; financial and management accounting, marketing, internet marketing, events and team management, web design strategy, business ethics, economics, retail management, human resource management, supply chain and health and safety amongst others.
Studying at the college has provided me with skills to secure an unconditional offer to study Marketing and Advertising at Leeds Beckett University.
