Business Studies

The pupils cover the syllabus for AQA Business Studies
Unit 1 and sit the BUSS 1 module in January.

The girls study all aspects of starting a business from the
initial idea, through research and pla
nning and up to the
start of trading.

The unit covers:
-

How to generate and perfect business ideas

Deciding how to raise finance

Assessing the profitability of a business

Choosing the best legal structure

Researching the market

Deciding whether or not to
employ others

Deciding how and where to produce your product.

Planning your cash and spending.

The pupils cover the syllabus for AQA Business Studies Unit 2
and sit the BUSS 2 module in June.

This unit focuses on medium
-
sized organisations and the
issues f
aced by managers when trying to make the business
more successful. In this unit we consider how decisions in
marketing, operations, people and human resource
management can help a business to be more successful. For
example:
-

By recruiting more successfu
lly and motivating employees the
performance of staff may result in better customer service.

By adapting the ways products are marketed the sales of the
product may be boosted and a decline in sales may be avoided

By improving the quality of products there

will be less waste
and fewer mistakes
-

increasing customer satisfaction and
boosting sales.

By good management of finances managers can help to ensure
that the business has sufficient cash and has the finance it
needs to pursue new projects.

Revision of t
opics covered for unit 2 and practice of
examination techniques.

Critical
Thinking

Unit 1

Introduction: what constitutes an argument and how
does it differ from claims, assertions and explanations?
Students are introduced to methods of analysing
arguments and their constituent parts. They learn how
to identify and evaluate the

role in argument of reasons,
conclusions, evidence, counter
-
arguments, principles,
assumptions.

Credibility of Evidence


a critical understanding of the
role of evidence is developed as well as a critical reading
of underlining agendas behind sources of
evidence and
Credibility of Evidence is continued. Several mock Unit 1
papers are completed.

Unit 2

Analysis of argument is deepened with consideration of the
role of intermediate conclusions and analogies. A study of
common flaws in argument
is followed by an assessment of
how arguments are either strengthened or weakened by
relevant or inappropriate use of evidence, principles, analogies
and assumptions.


The students’ skills of writing effective arguments of their
own are then developed. S
everal mock Unit 2 papers are
completed.
