BUSINESS STUDIES CURRICULUM INTENT
The aim of the Business curriculum at North Chadderton School is to develop enterprising and aspirational students with strong business acumen. The Business curriculum develops the students’ entrepreneurship and ability to identify business opportunities for future learning and employment.
WHY BUSINESS STUDIES?

Are you interested in setting up your own business? Perhaps you want to be the next Jeff Bezos, Oprah Winfrey or Kylie Jenner. Whether you are someone with entrepreneurial traits or somebody who wants to work in the business world, our GCSE in Business is the course for you! 

Our expert team of Business teachers will take you through a two-year journey of discovery in the business world and its functions. Across this course, students will examine how businesses are formed, how they succeed or fail, and how they grow to become global powerhouses, like Apple, Nike and TikTok.  

Throughout the course, students will develop a critical understanding of the dynamic nature of the business world and how successful entrepreneurs can respond to the challenges and changes of the business environment. Our students will also gain a wide-ranging insight into how different functions of businesses work; from the role of accountants in the finance departments to the role of brand executives in marketing, students will develop thorough knowledge of the careers available within the different functions and what the professions involve. 

If you want to develop your entrepreneurial skills, whilst also honing your ability to think critically about how successful business work, our GCSE course will support you in exploring the wonderful world of business! The knowledge and skills developed through your study of this course will provide a strong basis for studying Business at A Level and also has strong links to the study of Economics and Accounting at Level 3.
