Do you have an idea that you think could turn into a small business? Is your hobby becoming more than a hobby and are you thinking about making money from your skills?
This free* qualification will help boost your knowledge and confidence to make this happen and enhance your career prospects by giving you the skills, knowledge and understanding that you need to take your idea to the next level.
The Pearson BTEC Level 2 Tech Award in Enterprise is for students who wish to learn about behaviours and skills related to researching, planning, pitching and reviewing an new business or enterprise idea. The qualification will enable you to develop your technical skills (such as market research, planning, promotional and financial analysis using realistic work scenarios) and personal skills (such as monitoring own performance, time management and problem solving) through a practical and skills-based approach to learning and assessment.
You will acquire knowledge, understanding and skills to underpin your practical activities in assessment. Learning will take place through theoretical and practical study and you will have the opportunity to work with local businesses via presentations, visits and project work.
Upon completion of the programme you will hopefully have the knowledge and confidence to take your hobby, skill or small business idea to the next level, or you could even consider employment or an apprenticeship.
This course runs on a Thursday, and applications are still open join us.
*Please note a college admin fee will apply on enrolment.
"When I attended an Open Evening at the University Centre South Devon I was initially unsure which direction I wanted to take. When I spoke to a tutor about my goals, strengths and weaknesses, they guided me to a degree in business and management and I never looked back."Charlotte McGowan
