Business Studies S1/S2 Course

Business Information Technology - Second Year only


The overarching purpose of this course is to deliver the experience and outcomes of ACE through project based work to embody the attributes and capabilities of the four capacities. In particular we will be focusing on technologies and social studies but obviously sue to the interdisciplinary nature of the 5 chosen topics we will also deliver, literacy, numeracy and health and well being.

Course Design

The Course is split into 5 project areas:

  1. Travel
  2. Finance
  3. The Environment
  4. Enterprise
  5. Health

Each Project will have a Unit Planner that details the specific aims of that project and a detail of which experiences and outcomes are being delivered.

There is no formal assessment in this area but teachers will monitor progress through observation and checking of pupil work (print outs). Pupils will also be responsible for their own progress through the use of self evaluation (PLPs).

Pupils will attend this class on a rota basis with Social education and come for approx 6 weeks at a time. 

Pupils will have the opportunity to perform some tasks that will give them a taster of both business management and administration. These should help them to make informed course choices.


Each pupil will build up a file of documents produced and checklists will be completed by the teacher, using observation, as to the pupil’s skills.
