Dear Year 10

Welcome to BTEC Business.  Over the two years we will cover the following units:
  • Unit 2 Finance For Business
  • Unit 1 The Business Environment
  • Unit 4 Principles of Customer Service
  • Unit 8 Recruitment & Selection
What you need to remember is that you can either get a:

  • PASS at Level 2 (C) worth 12 points
  • MERIT (B) worth 18 points or a 
  • DISTINCTION (A) worth 24 points from each unit and overall.

Remember "if the numbers don't add up in theory they wont add up in real life"

What costs do you have to deal with in your day to day life as an individual or as a family?
