Business Year 10

Unit 61 

In Year 10, students begin by learning about the essential factors needed to plan and set up a business, such as Ownership, Business Objectives, Functional Areas and External Factors. They then apply this knowledge by planning and setting up an enterprise activity in small groups. This not only develops understanding of the key topics covered in Unit 1, but also essential skills needed in the working world such as teamwork, leadership, organisation and communication. We have links with local farmers’ markets and businesses, which enables students to gain valuable advice for the launch of their business. Our groups have also been invited to trade at local events.

By the end of Year 10, students complete Unit 61, which is assessed through a 1 hour exam at the end of the year.

(See the resources page for links to pass papers and mark schemes)


In Year 10 students also start work on Unit 63, which applies the theory knowledge from the exam preparation to setting up their own business. This is assessed through portfolio work and delivered through five  lessons a fortnight.
