Flagship BTEC Business Course

Students studying for the BTEC Business (Level 3) will have the opportunity to apply for the Co-op Flagship Pathway in the upper sixth. The course content is the same, but you’ll also complete a work experience placement at the Co-op’s Support Centre, at 1 Angel Square in Manchester city centre.

You’ll get the chance to experience working in different business areas including Human Resources, Finance, Digital and Marketing. With your personal mentor, you’ll work on live business projects that will help you understand the workplace and learn more about the next steps for you and your career. You’ll get support from both your tutors at Connell, and the Co-op, and you’ll learn presentation skills and interview techniques, as well as how to develop your CV. At the end of the course, all students are guaranteed an interview for relevant roles at the Co-op, which may be an Apprenticeship.

You’ll get paid for this work placement, in line with the Co-op new starter rate that’s in place when you join, as long as you meet attendance, punctuality and other course requirements.
