COURSE CODE 193


 
The Qualifications

Business Practices is a suite of qualifications designed to enable students to develop practical business skills selected from a range of units according to their learning needs.

The qualifications are offered through ABC Awards and are approved by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority for inclusion on the National Qualifications Framework from 1st October 2005.

The Awarding Body

The qualifications are offered through ABC Awards, which is a leading UK awarding body with a national network of approved centres.

Student Profile

The qualifications are accredited at level 2 and provide learning opportunities for a wide range of students seeking to study business subjects. Students should be 16 years old and the delivery and assessment methods make them suitable for learners in education, in employment or seeking employment skills.

Course Materials

Each module is supported by comprehensive study materials designed to provide students and tutors with everything required to complete their course of study. Study folders are presented in A4 ring-binder format and include study guide, core unit, elected unit(s) and student assignments.

Students are provided with a series of tutor marked assignments which are designed to ensure that learning outcomes are met.

Course structure

The Business Practices suite of qualifications provides 22 units each covering a business topic.  Students may elect to study individual units or a series, and on completion will be eligible for a Diploma, Certificate or Award in Business Practices. Each student also completes a short core unit designed to promote the application of learning to a business situation.

Course Delivery

Completion of the qualifications is based upon achievement of specified learning outcomes.  Consequently students may follow any form of delivery model devised by their study centre.  This can include open, distance & blended learning as well as tutor led courses. Qualifications are based on completing between 90 and 300 guided learning hours but this can be conducted over a timescale determined by the course provider.

Students may also gain accreditation of prior learning provided that the course learning outcomes are achieved.

Registration and accreditation of students takes place throughout the year, providing unlimited roll-on & roll-off opportunities
Assessment
Assessment for each unit and qualification requires the production of a portfolio of work which demonstrates achievement of the learning outcomes.  Tutors mark student work against specified learning outcomes. Students are presented with comprehensive case study details which can be used to demonstrate their learning if not currently in employment.

Assessments are set by centres and internally moderated.  The awarding body undertakes external moderation but there are no externally set assessments of examinations.

Diploma in Business Practices (300)
