Unit R064: Enterprise and marketing concepts: Students explore the techniques businesses use to understand their market and develop products, investigate what makes a product viable and understand how businesses attract and retain customers.

Unit R065: Design a business proposal: Students are presented with a business challenge from which they create a researched and costed business proposal. They will carry out market research, present data, use idea generation tools, seek and act on feedback, and cost their proposals. In their work on this unit they will develop their self-assessment, collaborative working, creativity, numeracy, research and evaluative skills.

Unit R066: Market and pitch a business proposal: Students prepare for and pitch the business proposal that they developed in the previous unit. They develop a brand identity and investigate how best to promote their product and then plan, practise and finally deliver their pitch. Afterwards they review both their performance and their business proposal. This will help develop their analysis and self-evaluative skills as well as those relating to self-presentation.

Additional Curriculum Information


The business world is relevant to all. It is therefore, our hope, that one day, our students will have realised their aspirations and will be earning a living though employment or perhaps through their own successful business venture. It is for this reason that our Enterprise curriculum holds such important relevance to their future.

Our localised curriculum strives to be interesting, relevant and challenging for all students who access it. It is both theoretical and practical; provides opportunities for individual and group work and as a result caters for many learning styles. 

We extend learning beyond the published requirements of the current qualification through the inclusion of additional topics, links to the world of work, meaningful encounters with industry and regular opportunities for the development of key career-based competencies.


Students are assessed via a combination of an externally set and assessed examination and externally set but internally assessed assignment tasks. All students have the opportunity to make excellent progress as a result of differentiated approaches to both theory and coursework learning and through regular progress analysis via internally set summative tests, regular and planned retrieval tasks and independent study tasks.

We hope students will leave the classroom enriched and resilient and with a deeper understanding of the significance of the business world to them and their future.
