You will be expected to know some local businesses in order to complete this course – these can be from the area in which you live or from Alton itself.

You must choose five businesses to research – you must consider a full range and at least one must be from each of these business ownerships:

  1. Sole Trader
  2. Partnership
  3. Private Limited Company
  4. Public Limited Company
  5. The final one can be any type of ownership

What you need to find out…..

  • What do they do? (provide a service/goods, manufacturing (make goods) or provide a service)
  • How many employees do they have?
  • Can you find out their revenue? How much money do they make a year?
  • Do they trade locally, nationally or internationally?

At the moment you will have to carry out your research on the internet!

HINTS: (after the Lockdown) Market days are great for finding sole traders and partnerships. will show you which are private (Ltd) or public (Plc) limited businesses – look for it in their names.

I got into both of the universities I wanted to. It happens so fast and it’s an amazing feeling when you think that all of the work you’ve done has paid off in the best way possible.

I focused and worked hard to get the grades. I had some support from my lecturer during a stressful time. The college is really good and supportive.
