Enterprise Solutions is designed to develop Cohort 7 and 8 learners’ understanding of the world of business entrepreneurship, ownership and project management through a variety of business studies topics. Learners will also have the opportunity to explore media industries through developing their knowledge of ‘the world of video games’ along with the challenges that the magazine industry are facing. Learners will also have the opportunity to explore the health and social care industry and how this aims to maintain individuals’ rights.
The investigative nature of the learning designs helps to develop learners’ experience of collaboration and communication across a variety of tasks and topics; learners also glean experience of crafting workable solutions across a variety of scenarios and investigations.
