The Eduqas Business GCSE introduces learners to the business world, empowering them to develop as commercially minded and enterprising individuals.
Throughout GCSE Business, learners will have the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills, enabling them to use business information critically, to develop arguments, to make justified decisions and to prepare them for further study and career pathways.
The Eduqas GCSE in Business encourages learners to:
- Know and understand business concepts, business terminology, business objectives, the integrated nature of business activity and the impact of business on individuals and wider society.
- Apply knowledge and understanding to contemporary business issues and to
different types and sizes of businesses in local, national and global contexts.
- Develop as enterprising individuals with the ability to think commercially and
creatively to demonstrate business acumen, and draw on evidence to make
informed business decisions and solve business problems.
- Develop as effective and independent learners, and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds.
- Use an enquiring, critical approach to make informed judgements.
- Investigate and analyse real business opportunities and issues to construct well‐
argued, well‐evidenced, balanced and structured arguments, demonstrating their depth and breadth of understanding of business.
- Develop and apply quantitative skills relevant to business, including using and interpreting data.
