Unit 1: Exploring Business. This will be internally assessed through coursework and studies different types of organisations including private companies and not for profit organisations.

Unit 2: Developing a Marketing Campaign. This will be externally assessed in controlled conditions, requiring the pupils to analyse and research a case study before producing a final report.

Unit 3: Personal and Business Finance. This will be externally assessed in the form of an exam.

Unit 8: The Recruitment and Selection Process which will be assessed internally through coursework and involves the pupils in a mock interview process, which is an excellent experience, allowing them to develop a personal development plan to help them reach their career goals.
