We are pleased to announce that our new GCSE (9-1) Business qualification is accredited for first teaching in 2017.
Our GCSE (9-1) Business specification provides a dynamic, contemporary and exciting opportunity for students to engage with the world of business today.
Relevant and contemporary – Our GCSE (9-1) Business uses a variety of real business contexts to consider issues and challenges facing entrepreneurs and commercial organisations.
Skills for a modern world – Students have the opportunity to develop as enterprising individuals with a practical set of key skills, including problem solving and decision-making, interpreting and analysing data, and more.
Clear specification and straightforward assessment – We have worked closely with current teachers to design a specification and exams that provide clear structure and fair assessment for all.
Opportunities for progression – This qualification offers an ideal foundation to gain insight into future career paths in business. It can provide a useful stepping stone to many further education qualifications including A Level Business.
Support and guidance – Our OCR Business team have a love of the subject that we want to instil into a new generation of business students. Our focus is on high-quality resources built on best practice. These resources are designed to support creative teaching approaches and progression for all students.
