N4/N5 Business Management
Our National 4/5 course delivers the Business Management Curriculum as outlined in the SQA documents.
We use teacher-led discussion, cooperative group work and many formative assessment strategies to give pupils the opportunity to demonstrate and improve their knowledge, practical skills and skills for learning, life and work.
Pupils are formally assessed using SQA assessment resources.
At National 4 level there are two units of work which are assessed by one formal assessment per unit. We also issue homework which covers each unit of work. This homework is graded as a percentage and is considered as part of the assessment of the course. All pupils will complete an added value unit at National 4 level. There is no final examination for National 4 level.
At National 5 level there are three units of work which are assessed by one formal assessment per unit. We also issue homework which covers each unit of work. This homework is graded as a percentage and is a vital part of the course as it helps to develop the answering techniques which are required for successful attainment at National 5 level. National 5 pupils will complete an added value unit at National 4 level and then a further added value unit at National 5 which forms part of the SQA final qualification result. The final exam comprises a question paper (70 marks) and an added value unit (30 marks).
Recording & Reporting
The SQA assessments and homework results form the basis for the comments in the pupil report issued to parents. These results are also used to inform decisions about exam presentation at the end of S4.
