Course Overview

Business is a dynamic and relevant subject which will show you how businesses approach marketing and PR, finance, business law, HR management and strategic decision making. You will look at how factors in the outside world affect business and society.


What will I learn?

Our aim is to study all the major aspects of the corporate world and the significant factors which influence business performance and success. This is not a dry factual study; we concern ourselves with how real businesses are making decisions today.

How will the course be assessed?

You will be assessed by examinations at the end of the two-year course.

You will also be expected to carry out independent study and other personal development activities alongside your programme, such as additional workshops, an Extended Project Qualification, leisure extracurricular activities, volunteering or work experience, or part-time employment.


At NCC we’re committed to ensuring that your studies are career focused and are linked to your future goals. Develop a new skill, learn how to be a leader, volunteer for a good cause and keep fit through sport. Enhance your learning and make the most of the array of activities on offer to help you stand out from the crowd when applying for university, an Apprenticeship or a job.


You will study in modern classrooms with interactive learning technology, and will have access to up-to-date resources.
