Qualifications available

Business qualifications are available from Level 1 (equivalent to a GCSE grades D-F or 3-1) up to higher education where we have a Business and Enterprise Foundation Degree and BA (Hons) Top up year, accredited by Oxford Brookes University. 

At Business Level 3, you will have the option to select specialisms in Human Resources, Marketing, Finance and Entrepreneurship.


Many of our subjects are taught in the classroom. However, this curriculum is enriched with a variety of external trips and visits to college from employers and universities.

Career pathways

A career pathway is a plan, with clear, practical steps you can take to achieve the career of your dreams. This will help equip you with the skills, attributes and knowledge that future employers want, giving you a greater chance of success.

Our career pathway maps will show you the best routes through college, higher education and employment and into the most popular industry sectors.

Industry partnerships

We work closely with partner organisations such as Webexpenses, Siemens Healthineers and Penningtons Manches, a leading law firm, as well as Experience Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action (OCVA), to help you gain a flavour of the realities on working in business. 

This means you will have the opportunity to work in projects set by employers, to take part in work experience opportunities and to listen to business guest speakers as part of your programme. 

One major project is the Karcher Accumulator Challenge, a competition our business students take part in each year to raise money for a local hospice, the Katharine House Hospice.

This all combines to help you build the skills and confidence you need to kick start and develop your career.
