Course Description

This Quality Assured Level 3 Professional Diploma course has been designed to provide students with an understanding of how businesses work; how the world around them affects decision-making within a business; what leads to change and how businesses respond to these issues; and the range of perspectives that can be taken on business activities.

It also helps develop a range of important and transferable skills: data skills; presenting arguments and making recommendations on the basis of the available evidence; and problem solving.

Students will study a broad variety of business related topics ranging from finance to operations management to provide them with a sound understanding of the subject. This course is ideal for those hoping to study a business related course at higher or further education.

All of the modules have references to the textbook (non compulsory) and selected websites. At the end of each lesson is a set of self assessed examination preparation questions to help prepare for the final examination. After studying the module you should be able to answer these questions. If you struggle with any of them, go back and re-read the relevant section.

Materials can be studied online or students have the option to have the materials delivered in print for an additional charge of £65.

Previous Knowledge

Assessment

Final online multiple choice examination counts for 100% of the final grade.

Throughout the course there are ten SAPs (coursework) and a thesis.
The course clearly states that this is not mandatory to complete as it has no bearing on the final grade.

We do suggest that students complete these as this will not only assist them in examination preparation but also will give the student the skill set should they wish to continue their studies (continuous professional development) at a higher level.

Awarding Organisation

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units the learner has completed as part of the course). 

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Oxford Learning College has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. 

The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

 The course itself has been designed by Oxford Learning College to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Support

This course offers full months tutor support. Tutors are available to answer student questions relating to course materials and to comment on the assignments that are sent in to state how well students have understood the unit content.
