A Level Applied Business is different from A Level Business Studies in a number of ways. Firstly, as the "Applied" title suggests we try to give you a greater involvement with businesses; so more trips to businesses, more research of real businesses, a one week work placement in the first year and a greater development of the personal skills you will need to do well in a business. Secondly, the Applied course is worth 2 A Levels, so you spend double the amount of time on it than on Business Studies. Thirdly, it involves more coursework.
What our students say......"Applied Business takes a hands on approach to the business world. I was Team Leader for an official merchandise launch show at Carmel in conjunction with St Helens RLFC which helped develop my business skills." (Christopher James)
