A-level Business (7132)
Version 2.1 Revised September 2015
The following scheme of work offers a route through the A-level Business course, covering all the sections and sub-sections in a logical order, including opportunities to develop the necessary set of skills required for interacting with the business world. Guidance is given about any prior knowledge which is helpful or required. The order is by no means prescriptive and there are many alternative ways in which the content could be organised. Time has been built in for assessment activities and revision but all timings are approximate.
This scheme assumes the AS course is a one-year course or the first year of a two-year A-level, with four hours of lessons per week, approximately 120 taught hours per year. A considerable amount of work would need to be completed outside lessons, partly depending on lesson time available.
