The Key Stage 3 Enterprise curriculum covers a wide range of skills and techniques, and a range of transferable skills in Enterprise. Pupils will develop their strengths in identified key areas and focused sets of skills each term.

In Year 9 learners cover a range of business related topics with assessments throughout the year that focus on the key skills needed to complete BTEC tasks in Year 10/11. Pupils will develop their strengths in these key areas before moving each half term onto another focussed set of skills in preparation for coursework beginning at the end of the year.


In Year 9 students start the BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise. All assessments are completed in lessons in order to build up vital skills required for success at BTEC level. Pupils are made aware of what they are being assessed on, and how, during each learning activity. These assessments are based on Exploring Enterprises, Planning for and Pitching an Enterprise Activity and Promotion and Finance.

Business is assessed through the completion of 2 mandatory units of coursework plus one written exam. The learning journey shows how students develop their skills to help support their progress in each unit in the best way possible to facilitate all learners achieving the best possible results.
