Entrepreneurial Skills and Business Growth Exploration

Pupils start by exploring the world of small business through the lens of an entrepreneur. How and why do business ideas come about? What makes a successful business? You’ll learn how to develop an idea, spot an opportunity and turn it into a successful business. You will understand how to make a business effective, manage money and see how the world around us affects small businesses and all the people involved.

Then you’ll move on to investigating business growth. How does a business develop beyond the start-up phase? You’ll learn about key business concepts as well as issues and decisions you need to make when growing a business and working in global business. You’ll learn about meeting customer needs, making decisions about marketing, operations, financial and human resourcing, and you’ll explore how the wider world impacts the business as it grows.
