Part of the Faculty of Social Sciences, A Level Business at DLD College allows learners to develop a holistic understanding of organisations in various business sectors and environments, drawing on local, national and global contexts. We embrace creativity and work to inculcate a measured approach to tackling questions that ultimately lead to justified judgments that avoid the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.
Learners will apply a number of analytical techniques such as break-even analysis, investment appraisal tools and ratio analysis in order to investigate business opportunities and problems. They will be equipped to determine appropriate business strategy in a range of contexts. Business Tutors at DLD aim to create an atmosphere that is dynamic in terms of its delivery of subject material, stimulating and one that nurtures an awareness of events and issues within the global commercial environment.
Students in the first year of the programme will all work towards the AS qualification. The content of the first year forms the foundation of the Eduqas A Level that is completed in the second year.
In today’s digital age, it is essential for learners to future-proof their education.
In addition to the common Key Components Strand, students will study the following subject components:
Music specific entrance requirements: Students should be currently working towards Grade 8 standard at Distinction level or the equivalent.
To study A Levels, your current or pending exam results should be equivalent to or higher than GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) in at least 5 subjects and a minimum level of English equivalent to IELTS 5.0.
At the start of each academic year of study students following an A-Level course without a pass at grade C in GCSE or IGCSE English Language or with an Academic English score below 6.5 overall must join an Academic English training course for the duration of the academic year which will be timetabled alongside A-Level lessons.
If your level of English is not sufficient to meet the entry criteria for the A-Level programme you will normally be offered a place on the Abbey DLD Colleges One Year Pre-sessional (Pre A-Level) in order to bring your English skills up to the required level.
“The Music Department helped me to develop my skills in composition, performance and general musical understanding. As a composer/pianist, I found the programme very useful and ﬂexible. The tutors really care about students, and if something is not understood, the tutor will continue until you get it.”
