What will I be doing?

This course will prepare you for study at degree level in a number of subjects within the business and the financial service industries.

Designed for mature students with an ongoing enthusiasm and passion for business and financial industries, this course offers you an excellent learning experience thanks to the great facilities at the Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone.

You will usually have some life experience outside of mainstream education, normally having been out of compulsory education for two years or more.

The objective of the course is to provide a supportive and friendly environment for you to develop your potential and to prepare you for university level study, with many past students going on to gain degrees and other awards.

You will study a variety of units with a focus on customer services, financial services, banking, insurance, business administration and finance as well as law, human resources and marketing. There may also be an opportunity to focus on Tourism and Hospitality, investigating tourism and leisure in Wales and tourism in Health. You will also study key skills units in communication and numeracy.

You will be continually assessed and there is an expectation that you will continue your studies and coursework in your own time. All assignments must be successfully completed in order to achieve the Agored Cymru Access to Business & Financial Services Diploma.
