‘Building powerful knowledge to grow confident & creative global citizens.’
At Lincoln Academy, our students who choose to study Business learn to develop their technical skills, such as market research skills, planning, promotional and financial skills using realistic work scenarios, as well as personal skills, such as monitoring their own performance, time management and problem solving. Developing sound knowledge of business concepts can help to spark creativity in those with entrepreneurial ambitions. Developing confidence in understanding financial terms, aids students in better understanding current affairs and to be more articulate in discussing matters related to enterprise.
Our recovery curriculum supports students' academic progress by acknowledging potential missed learning opportunities, supporting student wellbeing and facilitating enrichment. We continue to develop students resilience and sense of achievement fostering their ambition and celebrating their successes.
