Studying Business Studies at Silverstone UTC is an opportunity to study a broad subject in the social sciences combining elements of accountancy, finance, recruitment, market research and branding. Students who opt for this specialism will get the opportunity to put this inspiring qualification into practice through experience, working with our partners in events and through interaction with a host of guest speakers and employer representatives. Trips to the Showman Show and Cadbury World enable learners to see beneath the skin of businesses in action.
The business curriculum throughout Key Stages 4 and 5 seeks to provide a clear sequence of knowledge that is explicitly taught and reviewed throughout the curriculum. It also provides opportunities for students to explore business issues through challenging texts which draw upon the activities of local, national and international organisations. Learners will come to understand how businesses interact with society and understand the positive and negative impacts they have. They’ll also develop an understanding of the interdependence between businesses and consumers and to begin to identify ways in which they can use their power as consumers in a positive manner.
With exceptional careers advice and superb opportunities to meet employer partners, learners will develop an awareness of the local and national labour market and the opportunities these provide for fulfilling career aspirations. Many of our students go on to successful careers in the travel, business, finance and events industries or onto further education studying courses such as Accounting, Business Management, Cruise Management, Tourism and Hospitality or Events Management.
