The Business Studies Department at Bodmin College believe that Business is a subject that can fit into any student’s timetable. The courses we have chosen work in partnership with others to provide general and vocational qualifications that support education in ways that enable students to reach their full potential, to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need for their future, and to recognise and celebrate their achievements. As it is an aspiration for many young people to be self-employed and start their own business we have chosen courses at KS4 and KS5 that give students the knowledge, confidence and business analytical skills to do just that. The skills required for the subject include being able to work collaboratively and creatively, solve problems and have awareness of businesses and customers and these are similar requirements employers also request. Our KS4 course moves seamlessly to our KS5 course and opens many doors including working for yourself, apprenticeships, or full university degrees in Business.
