L3 BTEC National Diploma in Business

The BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business (equivalent to two A-Levels) will give you a solid knowledge base for career opportunities in areas such as Marketing, Personnel, Accountancy, Law, Retail, Finance, and Business Planning.

Universities welcome applications from successful BTEC Diploma Business students.

What will I learn on this course?

There are eight units, six of which are mandatory plus two additional choices from a wide range of options.

The core units are as follows:

  • Exploring Business
  • Developing a Marketing campaign
  • Personal and Business finance
  • Managing an event
  • International Business
  • Principles of Management

Unit 5 (International Business) is synoptic and is therefore delivered later in the course.

How will I be assessed for this course?

Three units are externally assessed via a combination of examination and “supervised assignment” tasks. These are U2 Developing a Marketing campaign, U3 Personal and Business Finance, and U6 Principles of Management. Timings are in set windows twice annually.

For the remaining five internally assessed units, there are a variety of learning methods and ways to show what you understand, including essays, video and  audio recordings, case studies, presentations and research-based reports. You  will accumulate your work in a portfolio, which is based on a broader range of  assessment methods than examinations only.
