Information from pupils who have studied this course as to how they feel it was.
Livie - S3
I chose S3 Business Management and I was pleasantly surprised with how liked it. I don’t like working with computers or any sort of IT, but this course wasn’t hard to understand, and I never felt like it was too hard for me to achieve any of the task required. I think taking an IT subject like Business Management is good and will set you up for life in the future and will help you understand a lot the language used in jobs.
Scott - S3
I chose Business Management because I need it when I leave school. You also learn a lot of skills in the subject like leadership skills, working as a group and skills you need to live your daily life.
