Our Intent

OCR GCSE Business aims to provide a broad curriculum where students gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the modern business world. Students investigate a dynamic range of current enterprises from the point of view of the owners, managers, customers, and employees. Students will learn about the problems and decisions facing small and large businesses and identify what makes business a success or failure. Students investigate how people in a variety of roles meet challenges and offer their own independent solutions. Students learn about what makes a successful entrepreneur, and develop skills for their own future in the workplace.
