What will they learn?

In the Business Faculty, all students have the opportunity to develop their wider employability skills at KS4 and KS5. Students have a number of pathways they can specialise in which include: Business Studies, Travel and Tourism, Health and Social Care, Surf Studies, Enterprise, Accountancy and Economics. Within these disciplines, students acquire the knowledge and skills to successfully run their own or work within business across many industries. In addition to this, they will learn the varying array of business functions within these industries which include: Human Resource Management, Finance, Marketing and Customer Service.

How will they learn it?

At all key stages, our subjects are taught in an exploratory manner where the students actively research and discover learning outcomes by themselves, often working collaboratively. Students follow a skills based approach, where they develop their understanding of subject knowledge and then apply it to real life contexts. In most cases this is in partnership with either local or national organisations where there is a firm emphasis on mutual benefits and hence purposeful learning. Once students have acquired the knowledge and skills necessary they then sit a series of controlled assessments across the length of the course which determines their final grade. In some cases, these controlled assessments may be examination based.

Where will it take them?

Studying a business related course at Treviglas opens many potential doors to either Higher Education or employment (be it Apprenticeships or Traineeships). As well as sound business knowledge, students who achieve will also have acquired vital transferable skills which are highly valued both by employers and higher education institutions. Many of our successful students have either progressed to university, joined meaningful employment or set up their own businesses due the subject grounding they have achieved at Treviglas
