The GBS Course provides students with the opportunity to participate in mainstream Certificate IV &/or Diploma level Business classes for 5-week blocks.
This program is ideal as an addition to the end of an English language course or as another avenue to enhance English language skills in a new context as students will be challenged through interaction with Certificate IV & Diploma of Business students, some of whom may be native speakers of English, and through exposure to English language in a Business context that has not been modified for English language learners.
In addition to learning a range of Business skills (micro credentials), GBS students have the opportunity to study in our brand-new subject ‘Entrepreneurships and Start-ups’ and learn about start-ups/incubators as well as some of the fundamentals of running a business such as:
- Concept development
- Business models
- Business plan development and planning concepts
- Funding models
- Business pitches and presentations
- Soft skills
- Successful communication in the workplace
- Risk management (overview)
- Creativity and innovation
