Welcome to Business
"Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming."
In this increasingly competitive world, business study courses provide an edge to the learner as they teach many aspects of the corporate world. They not only give a feel of the business environment, but also instil soft skills in the learner's personality. Business courses will start with teaching you the main functions of a company. These include financial planning, customer service, motivation and team working in the workplace.
At The Long Eaton School, Business is taught using a variety of teaching and learning strategies that aim to stimulate interest in the world of Business, including simulations, role play, case studies, visits and competitions beyond the class room.
