||GCE A/AS Level or Equivalent
At Chapeltown Academy we have introduced a new A Level that will take a holistic approach to the subject of Business Studies. The interrelated nature of business can be explored using business models, theories and techniques to support analysis of contemporary business issues and situations to provide a dynamic specification. The content is designed to engage students through topics and issues that are relevant in today’s society – they will study key contemporary developments such as digital technology and business ethics, and globalisation is covered throughout the topics.
Students will develop the knowledge and skills needed to analyse data, think critically about issues and make informed decisions – all skills that are needed for further study and employment.
Our question papers use a variety of assessment styles including multiple choice, short answer, data response, essay and case studies so that students feel more confident and engage with the questions. Real life case studies will be used wherever possible to make it easier for students to relate to and apply their knowledge and skills developed throughout the course

Many graduates with a more general business or management degree go on to careers in fields such as business development, marketing, HR, recruitment, banking, and industrial relations. These roles exist in a wide range of industries and businesses – food, fashion, retail, manufacturing, utilities, healthcare, tourism, and many more – and across the private, public, and voluntary sectors.
Undergraduates with finance and accountancy specialisms often go on to take professional qualifications while working in the field, such as certified chartered accountancy given by associations such as ACCA and CIMA. Others train to become investment analysts, financial advisers, tax managers, insurance underwriters, stockbrokers, business consultants, or risk managers.
For many of these professions, a business qualification isn’t essential. However, a business degree will give you a good grounding in areas such as communication, finance, market strategy, and business policy, which can give you an edge in your career.
