Business and Enterprise with Pearson: Preparing for the Future

Business and Enterprise with Pearson: Preparing for the Future


DANIAL KHAN: In the future I’d like to start
my own business. Because I chose GCSE Business it helped me open my eyes and see the reality
of the businessing world and I was able to see what the pros and cons are of actually
opening a business and how that can help me towards the future. ADNAN ILAHIi: Students come into Business
Studies thinking it will be a certain way. And what we’ve found from this new specification
from Edexcel is they really learn about different elements of a business and decision-making
in a business. And I’ve found that students come out of Business Studies lessons now talking
about careers they never knew about, going into different elements of finance, marketing,
human resources, and they really have a keen interest in what’s going on around them
and applying their business knowledge to that. CRISTINA BICHER: Post-16, I am hoping to take
economics or business or just branch out into the two, but I’m not sure which one I’d
like to take. RAHMAN YESUFU: In the future I am looking
forward to opening a business and it’s really helping me with that and being confident,
and also taking risks. DITI SHAH: In the future I would like to study
Computer Science at the University of Cambridge, and then afterwards go on and create a technological
business that combines my passion for computer science with business. REECE LEGGETT: I think the BTEC qualification,
in terms of preparing students for future study or employment, is one of the best for
doing that because it does give those rounded skills. It gives what employers want, which
is confidence, which is practical skills, that actually it’s not just about sitting
in a classroom. It’s about can you deliver a presentation, can you take part in this
role-play? WILL KING: The way with BTEC that I’d learnt
with them, it enabled me to get much higher grades than I think I would have done had
I been learning through some other methods. Definitely without those grades I wouldn’t
have been to get the course that I’m on. REECE: I think that this qualification allows
for learners to be fully supported in their individual needs, because it does allow for
that range of assessment. Not all learners are excellent at exams, and to simply say
that ‘You haven’t passed this exam, you’re not going to achieve’, is the wrong way.
And that’s where BTEC allows for that supportive measure. And also allows for students to shine
in other ways. WILL: It’s also built quite a lot of confidence
in me. I’m quite confident that I know the things that are going to come in my career
going forward, and I’m quite confident that I’ll know how to deal with those when they
come up. REECE: I think that the BTEC programme really
is constantly updating, it’s constantly adapting. So it’s bringing in new modules,
new units that are for the next five years. It’s looking forward constantly, it’s
not just looking backwards. And I think for students, it’s important that they understand
that. So, for our students with BTEC, they’re studying International business, they’re
studying different technologies that’s really important for their development going forward
and what’s going to make them employable in the jobs that we don’t currently know
even exist as yet. [END]
