Our Cambridge Technicals Diploma gives the student the assurance that they have the right qualifications to support a lifelong learning journey. The content is designed to be exciting and engaging, fit for purpose and suitable for the needs of our students.  

The Diploma is designed to meet the changing needs of the business sector and to prepare our students for the challenges they’ll face in Higher Education or employment. Through deepening their analysis and research skills, students will explore ways in which businesses respond to changes in their economic, social and technological environment; and gain an appreciation of the influence different stakeholders can have upon a business. The Business Diploma focuses on a Marketing Pathway. Expertise from businesses such as BT and Alton Towers have been integrated both traditional and new marketing techniques. The aim is to prepare students not only for academia but to take up employment in roles such as Marketing Administrator, Digital Marketer or Public Relations.
