European Business Competence* Licence (EBC*L)
In the current climate, the economy plays a very significant role in the daily life of society and this needs to be conveyed to the students of the school. Thus, for students in the 4th year of ESO, the school has included the option of studying in English for the European Business Competence Licence (EBC*L) in the educational curriculum. This course presents introductory and essential economic concepts, but does so from a practical perspective that teaches students about the task of learning to become entrepreneurs.
The EBC*L allows the student to understand how a company operates and to know how to make economic management decisions that could be applied wholesale in the day-to-day running of a business. At the same time the course allows students to broaden their knowledge of the English language from a more specialised perspective.
At the end of the course, students can take an exam, covering all the content worked on in the classroom, in order to obtain the EBC*L Certificate of Business Competence, recognised throughout Europe.
