BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate in Business


On the BTEC Business you will study three core units: Exploring a Business, Developing a Marketing Campaign and Personal and Business Finance and the optional unit 8 The Recruitment and Selection Process.


The lessons will be based around local and international business case studies. Students will be given the opportunity to visit businesses to see theory put into practice.

Personal Study Time

BTEC Level 3 students are expected to devote as much time outside the classroom to their studies as in lessons. You will be given significant amounts of homework on a regular weekly basis. The nature of this work will depend on the topic being studied but will always be given in order to reinforce the work covered in class and will often form the basis of assignment work.

How will it be delivered?

The qualification is assessed through developing a portfolio of evidence for each unit showing that set criteria has been met. There will also be two units that will be externally assessed.

Entry requirements
