Business and Tourism (Level 2 Combined First Certificate / First Award)

Combined Business Extended First Certificate and Travel & Tourism First Award (Level 2)


By combining the study of the tourism industry with an introduction to the world of business, this vocational course has proved both a popular and successful route for students who have not achieved enough points at GCSE for entry onto one of our Level 3 courses. The completion of both the Extended Certificate in Business and the Award in Travel and Tourism is equivalent to three GCSEs (A* to C).

You will be assessed continuously through coursework and assignments, together with an external exam in one of the units covered. Good organisational skills and the ability to meet deadlines are vitally important to be successful. In addition, you will be able to complete Functional Skills qualifications, or retake GCSEs in Maths and/or English. This will be discussed at the enrolment process.
