Business diploma at The JCB Academy Sixth Form

Business Pathway

The JCB Academy Sixth Form offers business in two diplomas and also at A-level. The business diplomas are a BTEC National Level 3 Diploma and a BTEC National Level 3 Extended Diploma. The level 3 diploma can both be complemented with an A-level and is the most demanding and rewarding of our vocational business pathway.

Our business diploma courses are quite different to the conventional way courses are delivered, offering significant enrichment to the learners who follow this vocational pathway. The opportunity to work with a variety of our ‘challenge’ partner companies; Trentham Gardens, PWC and JCB to name but a few, provides our learners with authentic organisational issues to examine. Learners are encouraged and guided to become more effective independent learners, whereby they recognize how to approach and tackle problems, whilst never losing sight that there is an effective support network as they require it.

The combination of the knowledge and skills developed following the completion of this course are equally transferable to university or industry, giving learners the ability to choose the most effective next step for them.
