Business & Management

Business needs to be agile to thrive, with qualified, skilled people at its heart

Business & Management at Wakefield College

Practical application is the key to studying business with us, and our students gain valuable business, office, and information technology skills which are attractive to employers.

Our students benefit from knowledgeable tutors who have a wealth of commercial experience. This is complemented by excellent facilities, including access to our state-of-the-art library and multiple ICT suites at Wakefield City Campus.

Key Points
  • Level 1 practical aspect with a hands-on approach
  • Level 2 and 3 courses include occasional visits including enterprise conferences and students are encouraged to take part in competitions
  • Guest speakers from the industry are invited in to share their experience and knowledge
  • Second year students will take part in the organisation and management of a practical event outside of the College environment
I have really enjoyed my studies at Wakefield College and I am glad I came here instead of carrying on to do another year at sixth form. I have achieved the grades I needed in order to do what I want next year which is either a law course at Leeds Beckett or a degree apprenticeship.

Craig Wigglesworth, Managing Director of a SME manufacturing company STT (Specialist Tooling Technologies Ltd) and David White, Head of Employer Engagement at Wakefield College discuss STT in particular and the region as a whole’s training needs. They talk about how Wakefield College helps to meet those needs helping businesses succeed and what needs to be done in the future to make sure they can continue to innovatively collaborate with businesses in the Leeds City Region and beyond.

The staff are amazing, supportive and always willing to help me succeed and exceed expectations. With their support I am now able to go further to study finance and accounting at the University of Huddersfield.

I really like the people I work with which I think is quite important. I hope to stay with the Arcadis company and do a surveying apprenticeship.

Studying my degree with the University Centre at Wakefield College allows me the flexibility I need as a mature student. The study hours fit well with my childcare needs.
