Business A level

Our Business A level course will empower you to investigate different types and sizes of organisations in various business sectors and environments, drawing on local, national and global contexts, including data that relates to the Welsh business environment. You will develop a holistic understanding of business and enterprise and become aware of the opportunities and threats of operating in a global marketplace.

You will learn to identify the opportunities that exist for entrepreneurs, as well as the importance of established business and not-for-profit organisations in providing goods and services. As well as broadening knowledge and understanding, you will be required to apply a number of analytical techniques, including decision-making models, investment appraisal tools and ratio analysis, to investigate business opportunities and problems to determine business strategy in a range of contexts.

There is also a numeracy element in which you will be expected to use a range of numerical skills and make justifiable decisions using both quantitative and qualitative methods and applying them in a business context.
