Business Studies

Year-7

Statement of Intent

“Helping out students demonstrate character by developing real world, enterprising, higher education and employability skills for tomorrow's leaders…..we support our students to achieve their full potential by equipping them with the essential knowledge needed to explore social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects through their learning….therefore enabling them to excel.”

Business and Economics contributes to the education offered at Campion School by giving our students the opportunity to develop their skills and explore a wider learning context. We learn about businesses from a variety of stakeholder perspectives, allowing our students to make well informed decisions, whether they hope to become an employee, a small business owner, a corporate executive or a Government official. We ensure our teaching allows us to create brilliant futures. We equip our students with essential knowledge about the profit motive, the functions of business, the wider business environment and the UK macro and micro economies as well as the World Economies.

Young Enterprise

Provides a unique opportunity for our students to set up a company owned by shareholders, produce and sell a product and generate a profit. As part of Young Enterprise, our companies will receive advice and guidance from local business people which will provide students with an opportunity to develop their enterprise and employability skills.

Young Enterprise students will attend regular meetings with their ‘Business Advisors’, attend training conferences, take part in local and national competitions and sell their products at Trade Fairs such as Milton Keynes, Northampton, Corby and Bedford.

Impact

Our Business and Economics Curriculum provides a solid foundation for further studies and students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and achievement, taking account of the industry standards for behaviour and performance. It also develops our students with the skills, qualities, attitudes, knowledge and understanding which are valued by both employers and further education and also equip them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.
