Years 10 & 11 Curriculum - Enterprise & Marketing
Enterprise & Marketing Level 1/2 Certificate - J837
The Level 1/2 Certificate in Enterprise and Marketing will appeal to students who are interested in developing an understanding of how businesses function, grow and make a profit. The Cambridge Nationals programme will be suited to those who prefer units to be achieved gradually across the two years. It is a vocational based qualification, enabling students to demonstrate a number of different invaluable skills which reflect the needs of employers, further and higher education as well as professional organisations.
What will I study?
During the two years students will need to complete a total of 3 units.
- R067: Enterprise and marketing concepts
- R068: Design a business proposal
- R069: Market and pitch a business proposal
How will I be assessed?
Unit RO67 is assessed externally and is worth 40% of the student’s final grade, the other two units are non-examined assessments and are worth a combination of 60% of the student’s final grade. The internally assessed units will be assignment tasks and could include reports, presentations, role-play and other portfolio assessments.
An overall grade for the qualification is awarded to all students who successfully complete all units. Grades awarded are L1/2 Pass, Merit or Distinction.
This is an external examination completed on paper. Students are expected to complete all questions asked during the time of 1 hour 15 minutes.
As a Cambridge National, this qualification is equivalent to a GCSE with the gradings as following:
