“The lessons are enjoyable and interesting. The course is also really practical and there are lots of opportunities to gain experience. During the course I helped to organise an event for Cancer Research UK. I also had the opportunity to do some work experience at Boots and NatWest bank.”
"Business Studies is a really exciting course. It really motivates me as I want to open my own gym in the future. It's giving me all the skills and knowledge that I need to do this. The teachers are really good."
“We won the Enterprise Challenge in March which was a Dragon’s Den style competition. Because we had to present our idea in front of the ‘dragons’, I feel more confident now. I’ve also learnt more about the financial side of selling a product.”
