The Business Level 2 Extended Certificate aims to provide students with an introduction to the world of business, examining concepts and ideas which will help students to gain an insight into how and why businesses operate. Assignments will be undertaken both individually and in groups and will give students a chance to develop both team and communication skills. Students will work using ICT software to write reports and organise presentations. There is a strong emphasis on learning sound research skills and using a range of sources to present their work. Planning and meeting deadlines are vital.
