S2 Course Overview

Each learner will study Business and Enterprise for one period per week over the course of the year.


The course is designed to further develop learning of Level 2/3 outcomes in ICT/Digital Literacy studied in S1 as well as introducing learning of Level 3 experiences and outcomes from the Social Studies and Technologies curriculum organisers within Curriculum for Excellence.


The use of ICT will be encouraged throughout the course, where available, to develop learners’ ability to create and edit a variety of texts, and source relevant information to assist them in the completion of tasks.


Learning timelines may be amended in order to take account of factors that may affect learning time available eg holidays/INSET and in-school activities eg house sports.


All learning activities will enable learners to develop their knowledge, skills and attributes within the capacities of Curriculum for Excellence:


  • Successful Learners
  • Confident Individuals
  • Responsible Citizens
  • Effective Contributors


A variety of methods will be used to assess learner progress, giving them feedback on their performance and ways of making improvements in their learning.


One homework will be given for each topic, which will give learners the opportunity to consolidate in-class learning or carry out independent research around the topics studied in class.
