What's Involved

The Level 3 NCFE Applied General Certificate is designed primarily for students who may wish to either set up their own business in the future, move into employment in the industry or progress onto further study to enhance their knowledge of business. The course has been developed to enthuse and inspire students with its strong vocational and hands-on element. Students will learn key areas of working within a business, such as Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Teamwork and Business Communication.

You can expect to study: 

  • Starting a business/enterprise
  • Research and analysis methods
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Management of people and operations
  • Finance
  • Produce a business plan for a business/enterprise
  • Evaluate a business plan for a business/enterprise

Taught by business specialists, the qualification involves completing practical assignments, self-study assignments and presentations that are based on real workplace situations. As part of this course all students will work as a team to raise funds for a local charity and will also take part in work experience. 

Entry Requirements

You will require five GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) or above including English & maths. Additionally, a reference from previous school or college will be needed as well as any other relevant certificates you hold.

Where will it take me?

This course may be used to gain further UCAS points, or as the first year of a Level 3 course while students re-sit 1 GCSE in either English or Maths. The course prepares students for further study to degree courses such as Business and Management, Business Studies or Marketing. Former students have progressed directly into employment and to higher apprenticeships in banking, retail, finance and ICT.
