The College’s foundation award in Business and Management is aimed at individuals who want to develop and broaden their Business and Management skills, thereby enabling them to successfully progress in their chosen careers.

Individuals from a variety of backgrounds will opt to study on the College’s foundation award in Business and Management. Prospective students may want to develop further their Business and Management skills. Prospective students may have been out of education for a while and are seeking a transition. It may be that the subjects a prospective student has taken at school or college are not appropriate for a degree programme that they would like to study. Or a prospective student may not have gained the sufficient number of academic credits at an appropriate level to allow them to enter directly onto a Bachelor’s degree course. Whatever their reasons for taking the course are, the Foundation Course will help them in their individual learning journeys.

The Course helps aspiring managers who have the ambition to learn more about what makes organisations successful in the modern world, the principles of effective leadership, and how to further develop their own skills and confidence to become effective managers.

The College prides itself on being student-focused and offering a highly supportive learning environment for all students undertaking the foundation award in Business and Management. In addition to equipping students on the course with important skills in Business and Management, the College’s foundation award in Business and Management also offers a transition entry point into the College’s various Bachelor’s degree courses.

If a student decides to go on and study on one of the College’s Bachelor’s degrees then they can progress in confidence knowing that the College’s foundation award in Business and Management is designed with their next level of study in mind. The College has developed its Foundation curriculum to ensure that there is a close alignment with the modules and topics that a student will study after completing their Foundation Course. Our teaching, learning and assessment methods also reflect those that a student will experience throughout their degree.
