Department Leader: Andy Major
Welcome to the business department. We are a group of experienced teachers who are passionate about our subject. You cannot escape from business, it is everywhere and affects everyday life. It is important to understand the impact that it has on your life and this is what we aim to do.
Every day there are news stories that directly relate to the world of business and we will refer to them regularly so that you can understand how it all fits together and question what is going on and why.
We will also look at the key areas that make sure a business is successful and how they contribute to that success. These include finance (the money is VERY important!); marketing (how you let people know about your business and product); human resources (the people who work for the business) and operations (making the product). You will see how these areas work together to make a winning formula.
We are a real life subject that you will use for the rest of your life. The lessons that you learn in business will shape what happens to you for your career and afterwards!
