A BTEC level 2 Certificate/Diploma is a practical, work-related course. You will develop the knowledge and skills to complete projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations. The course is equivalent to four GCSE grades A*-C.

Course details

The Edexcel BTEC level 2 Diploma in Business is a 60-credit qualification that consists of four mandatory units plus optional units that provide for a combined total of 60 credits. The optional units will introduce learners to particular topics in more depth, during which you will have the opportunity to explore how businesses operate.

How is it assessed?

All units are internally assessed and graded by teachers. To get the level 2 Diploma, you must at least pass all units.

Course duration

One year full-time.

Entry requirements

What do I need to study this subject?

You should have BTEC Foundation Learning (level 1) Diploma, or four GCSE grades A*-D, including English Language and Maths, or another related level 1 or 2 qualification.

Where can this lead me?

With further training or study, learners may progress into business-related careers such as accounting, administration, customer service, finance, IT, personnel or sales. The course gives a very good preparation both for employment and more advanced courses such as a BTEC level 3, Certificate or Diploma.

What are the enrichment opportunities?

An invaluable part of this course is that each student will be expected to start up and run a small business, with colleagues, within the Young Enterprise Scheme. Visits are an integral part of the course: for example, a trip to France is organised every year and you will have the opportunity to take part in work experience.
