For budding entrepreneurs

Were you inspired by the latest series of ‘The Apprentice’? Or do you fancy yourself as the next Richard Branson? If so, then Warwickshire College may have the course for you.


From September 2011, Warwickshire College is running a new BTEC level 3 course in ‘Enterprise and Entrepreneurship’ at its Leamington centre. The course will teach aspiring business minds how to design, plan, set up and run a business, looking at risk taking and problem solving skills.


Students will have the opportunity to study and work with local businesses and have the opportunity to set up their own business venture within the college.


Senior Curriculum Leader, Jackie Cook, said: “Business Studies is already a popular course with young people. This course goes a step further, helping students to develop the practical and personal skills to start their own business one day.


“The course will appeal to students with a creative and innovative flair, helping them to develop their entrepreneurial skills. In the current climate, such problem-solving skills are very valuable and can be applied in the students’ own future business, or an existing company.”


The BTEC is the equivalent of one A level and can be combined with A level study at the college. For more information, contact admissions on 0300 45 600 45
