The Foundation Diploma is for learners looking to study business as a one-year, full-time business course, with the option to progress to a second year.
The course is free for anyone aged 16-18 years. There are no additional costs to the course, other than course trips that maybe organised throughout the year.
The course is assessed by a mixture of reports, presentations, discussions, examinations and observation of activities. You will be allocated a career progression tutor who will assist with your development and any pastoral support you need.
