This course is designed for those wishing to prepare for a career at management level in business. The course comprises eight core and eight optional units. You may be able to select optional units and design a study pathway to work towards your particular career interests. It is practically based and will provide you with skills and expertise which are both current and highly marketable. This qualification has been approved by ACCA, CIMA and CIPS and may also offer exemptions in professional body exams such as CIMA, CIPD, ACCA and CIPS (units dependent). Year 1 comprises the HNC (Level 4 Higher National Certificate) qualification. You could then progress on to the second year HND (Level 5 Higher National Diploma) to fully complete the qualification.
The course has a broad business base, such that each unit will be distinct. Teaching and Learning therefore follows a varied pattern. Learning is accomplished by: · Lectures & Seminars · Speakers & visits · Application of theory and models to real and fictional case studies to analyse problems and make recommendations · Individual, Paired and Group work · Design, Role Play and Experiential Learning · Presentations to Business Clients who feedback on students’ plans and recommendations.
At the end of the course you will have the opportunity to celebrate your achievement with a full graduation ceremony at Chichester Cathedral.
You may wish to convert the HND into a full BA (Hons) Degree by completing the top up year, this is available at Chichester College or other UK universities. Alternatively, the excellent long-term career routes for HND Business holders.
