Year 10 Business Studies
Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Megson
Business Studies is designed to provide students with essential financial skills they will need to participate effectively in today's economic environment. This course provides students with an introduction to business studies, accounting and economics. It covers basic economic and accounting principles in a practical manner. The students will develop their understanding of fundamental principles so if they wish to continue in either / or both subjects at Year 11 and higher they will be able to build upon this understanding. This course also allows students to develop their business skills. They will study what makes people successful and learn how to develop these skills in themselves. Students will have practical experience in operating a business, creating a product and selling it at a market day.
Course availability is dependent on numbers and staffing, and course entry will be confirmed at the beginning of 2021. Students will be required to select additional back-up courses as part of this process.
