In the Business Studies department we improve the understanding of the young person to world of business around us. We teach the meaning of what, how and why businesses do what they do. Things a person takes for granted which they see in the world around them e.g. advertising, new products, paying workers, international trade, foreign businesses setting up in the UK – we explore WHY these actions are done. We aim to add ‘sense’ to it all! At the end of the course the student is better equipped to enter the world of work as an employee or even to set up their own business.
