Business at Ashford College is one of the first three pathways to be offering the new T Level courses! Our Management and Administration T Level equips you with the cutting-edge skills, knowledge and industry experience you need to start your journey in a range of jobs in the business industry. As a T Level is equivalent to 3 A Levels and is 80% classroom based / 20% work placement based, you will gain the skills you need both for academic growth and the world of work! Find out more about T Levels here.
In Accounting/Business, we have a variety of partners and businesses in our community that can help make sure that you get the right placement for your future. Accounting student David recently had a work placement at TaxAssist Ashford and worked so hard that he has now been offered a Level 3 Apprenticeship with them. See what he had to say below!
Our Business departments get involved in lots of charity and community work which helps to open up opportunities for them. One recent example was the ‘Money for Honey’ cake sale helping to raise funds for Honeypot Children's Charity. As part of this, students had to work out how different business areas could affect the cake sale fundraising, such as marketing, administration, and networking to help sell cakes around the college!
With the practical experience you will gain from Ashford College, there are so many options you can go down after you complete our Accounting/Business courses. Whether you want to go into administration, marketing, finance, management, or another choice such as running your own business, we will help streamline your knowledge so that you make your mark when it comes to the future.
As part of our T Level offering, we are currently underway looking into new tech and new business opportunities for our students. Facilities at Ashford College currently include a dedicated business hub, and boardroom space to practice negotiation and pitches.
