Saint George’s offers two Business-related tracks for students to choose at Sixth Form.
For students wanting to know what business is, the importance of managers, leadership and decision making as well as how to improve marketing, operational, financial and human resource performance, and how to analyse strategic direction and manage change, we offer AQA’s A Level in Business.
The course is broken down into ten topics of study over the two years. At AS level students study topics 1-6 and 7-10 at A2. There are 3 exams at the end of Year 13; all are externally assessed.
The IFS Level 3 Certificate in Financial Studies (CeFS) covers the core disciplines of financial education. The qualification provided a foundation for continued study within the finance sector and a wide range of other business-related disciplines.
Many students go on to study subjects such as accounting, business, finance and banking at university or through further vocational training.
Students can use the qualification as a stepping stone towards future employment within the finance sector, gaining valuable understanding to support entry to employment in a range of varied roles.
The Level 3 Diploma in Financial Studies (DipFS) is for students who have already achieved the Certificate in Financial Studies (CeFS).
Building on the knowledge gained in CeFS, this course enables students to develop and enhance their financial knowledge and skills by applying them to the wider financial environment.
DipFS instils further knowledge to support progression to university to study subjects such as accounting, business, finance and banking. It can also be the launchpad to an entry level career within the financial sector ensuring that learners have a broad financial understanding and knowledge.
Information Sheets on both courses are available at the Sixth Form Information Evening.
