PROGRAMME OF STUDY 

Each subject programme of study will:

  • Provide a clear and coherent learning journey
  • Foster subject-based understanding of new knowledge, concepts and methods
  • Ensure students acquire knowledge and give opportunities for recall and application of this knowledge so that fluency is developed
  • Require students to think and reason for themselves
  • Explanations and resources enable students to engage with and master learning
  • Learning should develop a depth of understanding that brings richness to the subject but also a breadth of understanding that enriches wider life and learning
  • Develop a readiness for the next stage: be this the next lesson, the next unit of work, the next year or key stage; it prepares students for both academic, A Level, and future degree study, or vocational learning
  • Contain appropriate, regular and robust assessment methods for measuring student progress and to allow intervention where progress is not as expected.

In order to see an overview of the sequence and progression of learning in Business Studies please see their Programme of Study.
