Business Management

About the Level 2 Business Management Certificate

Managing a business involves controlling and overseeing lots of different elements. This can be difficult, especially if it is your first venture into business management. This distance learning business management course aims to prepare the students of Stonebridge College for the challenges and complexities of the business world.

Business is a vast subject area, so we have divided the interesting and engaging course materials into four easily manageable modules. As you work towards your business management certificate, you will learn all you need to know about effective management, employing staff, performance management and time, stress and crisis management.

Who should study this course?

This home learning course has been designed for students who are new to business and management and want to develop their skills. Whether you are considering opening your own business, or you simply want to expand your business knowledge, this course will help you.

You do not need any prior knowledge or any qualifications before enrolling on one of our short business courses. All you need is an interest in business management and the motivation to engage in independent home study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your business management certificate, you may decide to study further business courses with Stonebridge. You may even choose to complete an Access to HE Diploma and go on to study business at university.

Alternatively, you may decide to use your new found skills to start up your own business, or apply for a job in management. Strong and intelligent leaders are needed in every employment sector, this means you could end up working in one of the following roles:

  • Small business owner
  • Project manager
  • HR manager

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Business Management Certificate

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 2 Business Management Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales

Who are ABC Awards and Certa Awards

ABC Awards and Certa Awards

ABC Awards and Certa Awards have long-established reputations for providing high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. ABC Awards and Certa Awards combine over 180 years of expertise combined with a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of our customers.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
