The BTEC Business Level 3 at Carmel College gives every learner the opportunity to develop a real understanding of what is involved, both theoretically and practically, in becoming an effective business professional.
We try to give you a greater involvement with businesses. Therefore, we offer more trips to businesses, more research of real businesses, and a one-week work placement in the second year. Additionally, we encourage greater development of the personal skills you will need to succeed in the business world.
You have the opportunity to study the course as a single qualification which is the equivalent to 1 A Level (Extended Certificate). However, you can study the course as a double award qualification which is the equivalent to 2 A Levels (Diploma).
