Level 2 Business Studies

L2BUS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Williams

What will I learn and how will I learn?
The course includes both group and individual work, as well as internal assessments and external exams. Students will be working together to set up and run a business where they will support a community organisation in some way. Students will work through units on: Marketing and Market Research, Community Enterprise and Business Planning, functions of a large business, and the business environment.  

Conditions of Assessment 
Collection of evidence for the internally assessed standards can include, but is not restricted to, an extended task, an investigation, digital evidence (such as recorded interviews, blogs, photographs or film) or a portfolio of evidence. Assessment can be integrated into one activity that collects evidence towards two or three different standards from a programme of learning.  Evidence can also be collected over time from a range of linked activities (for example, in a portfolio). Authenticity of student evidence needs to be assured regardless of the method of collecting evidence.  

Submitting Internal Assessment
Depending on the nature of the assessment, this can be electronic or hard copy. The mode depends on the assessment conditions.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in student work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
