So why study business? Business courses have and remain to be one of the most popular course options for students who go on to further study at University or College. Whether it is developing your numeracy skills through the study of accounting, improving your digital skills with Administration & IT or increasing your awareness of global commerce with Business Management, there is sure to be an option that suits you!
We make use of a variety of digital technology to help support our students and to increase their awareness of the dynamic UK and global business environment that will soon be an active part of.
We make extensive use of GLOW Teams, especially in the senior school, to work collaboratively and to make resources accessible outwith the classroom.
The department makes use of Twitter to help direct senior students to relevant business articles. Extra reading will ensure that they are up-to-date with real-life company examples to back-up theory answers in an exam situation.
