Many people dream about becoming their own boss one day. Getting to make your own decisions and knowing that the hard work could be rewarded, both professionally and financially, is a great incentive for the hundreds of thousands of people who set up a business every year.

The BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise will provide your first insight into how SME’s (small and medium-sized enterprises) operate and the challenges they face. By investigating ownership models, business aims, location decision and ethics you will get to find out the decisions all owners are faced with before getting chance to plan the setting up of your own small enterprise. As this is a BTEC subject two-thirds of the course will be assessed through the completion of written coursework.
