BUSINESS & ENTERPRISE

Vision:

Our vision in the Social Enterprise faculty is to provide a backbone of skills and understanding transferrable both to the real world and further academic excellence.

THROUGH OUR BUSINESS & ENTERPRISE CURRICULUM WE INTEND TO:

  • Ensure students receive an ambitious curriculum and learn both academically and through practical application which inspire students to enter the world of business regardless of protective identities.

  • develop diverse ambitious enterprising individuals with the ability to think commercially and creatively.

  • Promote inclusion and diversity by using a range of role models and case studies in our topics, materials, and resources to help prepare students for the real world.

  • Create opportunities for students to learn practical and transferable employability skills and knowledge which allow learners to progress on a pathway to work or to an apprenticeship.

  • open up the world of business through access to a diverse range of people from the world of business both in and out of school

  • develop social and cultural awareness by exploring current affairs (local, global and national) and their impact on students and their families

  • instilling kindness and courtesy by developing their ethical and environmental awareness through exploring international trade to enable then to make wise decisions as a consumer

  • Provide opportunities for students to extend their vocabulary and use of standard English language, and for them to apply their mathematical knowledge in different contexts. 

 

KEY STRENGTHS OF THE BUSINESS & ENTERPRISE CURRICULUM:

The Business curriculum at BBEC exceeds the National Curriculum because:

 

  • Business Studies and Enterprise follow the Edexcel specification at both GCSE & BTEC. This is a national exam board which is highly respected.

  • The curriculum is mapped to follow the order of the completion of the exams and is chunked according to specification points, providing students with a logical progression through the GCSE & BTEC programmes.

  • Students are provided with independent learning resources that can be accessed through Teams & Knowitallninja to develop their own knowledge on their own and to address any gaps that they may have. This enables them to develop their knowledge over time in a way that is most effective for their individual needs.

  • We have experienced teachers with long term experience teaching key stage 4 and 5 Business and Enterprise.

  • Teachers include expert examiners from the exam boards and mark for the Edexcel Business specification.

  • Regular feedback given both verbally and written form to allow students to respond to so that they can actively control and see their progress. Model answers are also shared.

  • Current reading materials explored by bringing the news and current affairs into lessons.

  • The curriculum provides the skills and knowledge to set students up to study Business & Enterprise at KS5

  • Deliver engaging challenging lessons which have led to good results and a popular choice for options.
