So, The Diploma What is it?
  • The Diploma is a new kind of qualification for

    study and hands-on learning.
  • It is designed to help you get knowledge and
    skills that all employers and universities want.
  • The Diploma will appeal to students of all
    abilities and aspirations, who like to learn
    about subjects in ways that relate to real life.

The Diploma what it isnt
  • The main aim of the Diploma is to help you gain
    vital skills for life and work through a

    on an area of work, the Diploma is not a

    will give you a good grounding for further
    training, study and employment.

Business makes the world go round
  • Business creates wealth. Economies depend on it.
    And the profits that businesses make finance the
    public services.
  • The UK, in particular, has a strong enterprise
    culture and young people play a key role in
    this. In the last year, around 70,000 young
    people started new businesses in England and
    Wales. To do that successfully, you need
    essential business skills and understanding.
  • There are exciting global opportunities,
    rewarding careers and high salaries for the most
    successful young people.
  • All employers value individuals who understand
    what business is all about and how it works, who
    are self-motivated and flexible and who can work
    well in a team and communicate effectively.

    that you could go on to work in

    Finance can help you become one of the people
    that business is looking for.

11
Business, Administration and Finance three main
areas
  • Business enterprise Looks at how to develop
    ideas, do market research and promote products or
    services. It also looks at setting up and running
    a business and the uses of information
    technology.
  • Business administration Introduces key
    administrative roles and processes in business
    organisations like reception, secretarial,
    personal assistants and why they are so
    important. It also looks at issues such as how
    projects are managed and health and safety in the
    workplace.
  • Finance Looks at the knowledge and skills needed
    to manage personal and business finances, budgets
    and bank accounts. It also looks at the roles of
    people like accountants and how financial data is
    used to help businesses to succeed.

12
Foundation Diploma in Business, Administration
and Finance
  • Business enterprise Youll learn about the
    different types of products and services,
    innovation and creativity, and market research
    and promotion. You could, for example, find out
    about a new product that could be sold by a shop
    in your area and carry out market research to
    find out whether it would be popular.
  • Business administration Youll learn about the
    key administrative roles and processes in
    business organisations. As part of a team, you
    could, for example, work out the different roles
    in the reception of a large company and take
    turns to play them.
  • Finance Youll learn about the concept of money
    and its functions, the most common sources of
    financial advice, personal budgeting and
    different types of bank accounts. You could, for
    example, set up a current account and a savings
    account and work out how much interest you will
    get on your money (though this might not involve
    real money!).

13
Higher Diploma in Business, Administration and
Finance
  • Business enterprise Youll learn about
    entrepreneurs and innovation, planning, setting
    up and running a business, and the uses of
    technology in business. You could, for example,
    come up with an idea for a new product or
    service, and develop a business start-up and
    implementation plan, together with a marketing
    strategy.
  • Business administration Youll learn about the
    importance of administration and administrative
    systems. You could, for example, act as if you
    were the personal assistant to a Chief Executive
    of a manufacturing company and carry out a range
    of activities, including making travel
    arrangements, preparing for meetings and
    organising office supplies.
  • Finance Youll learn about the most common types
    of financial services and products and their
    associated risks and rewards. Youll also learn
    about key finance roles, accounting processes and
    documents, the main sources of business finance,
    including their costs and benefits, and types and
    current rates of business taxation. You could,
    for example, set out a budget for your new
    enterprise, record transactions, calculate tax
    and construct a financial report.

14
Advanced Diploma in Business, Administration and
Finance
  • Business enterprise Youll learn about the
    structure of business organisations and the
    processes involved in planning, setting up,
    running and closing a business venture, the role

    for example, develop an idea for a new product or
    service, draw up a business start-up and
    implementation plan, present it to investors,
    sell your product or service and then close the
    business.
  • Business administration Youll learn about
    information management, and project and event
    management, as well as the main provisions of the
    health and safety regulatory framework that UK
    businesses operate in. You could, for example,

    policies for companies in your area and propose
    improvements, identifying how these will improve
    financial performance.
  • Finance Youll learn about the purpose and
    principles of financial accounting, business
    finance and taxation, the structure,
    interpretation and use of financial documents,
    and how different types of financial data are
    analysed and used. You could, for example,
    develop a financial plan and identify which
    financial investments will be most suitable to
