The Business Studies Department is a popular choice with students at Andrew Marvell College - We offer BTEC courses at different levels in Business, Travel & Tourism and Workskills.
About the BTEC Programme
A BTEC programme is an exciting way to study. It gives you the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding that you will need in the world of work. BTECs are very different from GCSEs; a BTEC puts you in charge of your own learning. At Level 2, we offer the BTEC Extended Certificate (equivalent to 2 GCSEs) and a BTEC Diploma ( equivalent to 4 GCSE's).
The department has grown in recent years to reflect the growing importance of Business Studies in education, and the recognition of the skills that it brings which are sought after by employers. Our department is made up of four Business and Travel Specialists.
