to higher education at derby college

part-time courses that we offer

range in the level in the

sort of from the level one aat

qualifications

right up to the level four hmc

hnd and also the foundation degree

in business and management so as you can

see

from the range of courses depending on

what you’re interested in

we can offer aat and business as part

time

for

adults and people in employment

or adults 19 plus um

either either in employment or applying

for

any of the sort of study loans or

employers are sponsoring

them

we have a range of business academies at

business that we work very very closely

with

and as you can see from our range of

business academies and employer

academies

um at the college

we have a selection

on this slide we work closely with

employers

in order to co-design our curriculum

our employers that we work with offer

projects

they offer work experience they

also come in and do guest speaker

sessions

they do a business communications day so

that our

students can hear first hand from

employer partners exactly what employers

are looking for

and they also offer job opportunities as

well

so as a dcg student in business

you would be able to access a range of

work experience or opportunities

through our employer partners as well

so what do you need to know about our

actual course

well on the business course one thing

that you do

need to know and be mindful of is that

the level two programs and the level

three

programs have exams

they have exams so external assessments

in january we also

allow the students to do a retake of the

exam

in the summer so around sort of

end of april may

preparation for the exams we do

encourage all students to

purchase the textbook we do encourage

students to have the revision guide

and we do do sort of additional classes

in terms of study skills support

academic writing thinking skills

for for all of our students at all

levels but it is definitely worth you

knowing

that each of the level two and the level

three qualifications

carries some exams on

the extended first certificate

in business at level two there are two

exams

one in marketing and one in finance

on the level three

qualifications again there are two exams

in the first year again there’s a

marketing and a finance unit

and then there’s two other exams in the

second year

one of them is the principles of

management unit and the other one

business decisions so be mindful of that

there is also coursework that is done

and assignment deadlines throughout the

year

we do have a dress code in business um

so we require our students to wear

a formal dress code but not

not not sues so what we ask for

is sort of casual business attire that

you would wear

in in the world of work as well

so we don’t expect students to wear sort

of jeans trainers

tracksuits um

while they’re in the classroom at

college

and also in terms of footwear students

are required to wear

shoes as well as i said before you get

access to a range of employer academies

that you can join and also it’s

fantastic because

these employer academies also offer work

experience as well

some of our students have actually sat

on the board of the employer skills

board with the employer academies

because it’s really really useful for

the employees to hear from student

representatives

what students want in terms of our

course as well

our work placement opportunities we do

block work placement weeks or we can

tailor the work experience

so that it is throughout the academic

year

every study programme also offers

personal tutor

and progression coach support as well

derby college has had a significant

impact on many individuals

businesses and the wider community we

are committed to producing a talent pool

equipped with the right skills and

attitude to meet the needs of employers

economic growth and social prosperity
