About the Level 3 Business Studies Certificate

No matter what your interests or abilities are, you can probably turn them into a business venture. That is, if you have the skills, knowledge and determination to create your own business. Good business skills are irreplaceable and can be used to work in already established businesses, or to create your own.

If you believe you have the drive to cut it in the business world, this distance learning course will help you get there. The qualification is made up of a number of engaging modules which will train you in all important areas of business. Learn about scale and growth, the structure of business, marketing, production, distribution, training, pay and taxation among many other topics.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at aspiring businesspeople who want to build their own businesses from the ground up. It is also suitable for individuals who already work in a business related area who want to broaden their understanding and climb the career ladder.

In order to enrol on this business studies course, you do not need any prior qualifications. Our home study materials have been created for students with no former experience of business. All you need is a way to access our materials and the drive to succeed in the business world.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, Stonebridge College will award you a certificate in business studies. You will also gain a range of transferrable skills and knowledge which may help you start up your own business.

If you don’t feel ready to tackle the business world right away, you may decide to pursue higher level business related courses. There are plenty of relevant university courses on offer all over the country. If you work hard, and pursue your goals, you may end up a one of these jobs:

  • Business owner

The course has been endorsed under the 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 3 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 Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme 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.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives.
