The HNC in Business has been developed to focus on providing education and training for a range of careers in business, such as management, administration, personnel, marketing, accounting and law, as well as providing a general qualification which allows flexibility of study to meet local or specialist needs. Higher Nationals are designed to provide a specialist vocational programme, linked to professional body requirements and National Occupational Standards where appropriate. They offer a strong, sector-related emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding. The qualifications provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their sector and their national recognition by employers allows direct progression to employment.
The core units studied at level 4 include: • Business Environment • Marketing Essentials • Human Resource Management • Management and Operations • Management Accounting • Managing a Successful Business Project. The two optional units studied are: • Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management • Business Law.
The programme is assessed through the submission of written essays, reports and reflective logs, a series of project based practical work-based assessments. Formative feedback will support student progression in both written work and business outcomes. Self and peer assessment in convener/critique situations will be an essential element of all projects and the feedback from these will enhance student achievement and progression. The programme allows 120 credits at each level.
