TEF Gold. Teaching Excellence Framework.

Overview


This programme offers modules which provide you with a sound framework in all aspects of business. The course is flexible and you can tailor the modules around your specific interests.

Business and Business Entrepreneurship is built around an entrepreneurial stream that runs through the three stages of the course. You will gain knowledge of business start-up, business growth and development, managing opportunities, starting an online business and developing strategy.

We will support you to achieve your career and study ambitions, which is why if you complete our Employability Plus Gold programme or Changemaker Gold certificate alongside your studies and if you haven’t secured full-time employment 12 months after graduating* we will secure a three – six month paid internship for you, or support you into postgraduate study.
