BTEC Level 3 National Extended Certificate in Business

BTECs embody a fundamentally learner-centred approach to the curriculum, with a flexible, unit-based structure and knowledge applied in project-based assessments. They focus on the holistic development of the practical, interpersonal and thinking skills required to be able to succeed in employment and higher education. BTEC National qualifications provide a broad introduction that gives learners transferable knowledge and skills.

The BTEC Level 3 National Extended Certificate in Business is for learners who are interested in learning about the business sector alongside other fields of study, with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses, not necessarily in business-related subjects. It is designed to be taken as part of a programme of study that includes other appropriate BTEC Nationals or A-Levels. Students study two mandatory units (each with a written examination) and two optional units that are internally assessed assignments. In addition, students will have to undertake a week of work experience in Year 12.  The mandatory units are:

  • Developing a Marketing Campaign
  • Personal and Business Finance
