BTEC National - Unit 30

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by seren256, Jul 6, 2010.

  1. Is anyone else doing Unit 30 Visual Merchandising in Retail from the new spec? I have been given it as a unit to teach from Sept. but am struggling to come up with assignment ideas!

  2. Hi,
    I am not teaching this but used to work in retail and last year taught the btec first in retail which has a similar unit. Try this link for resources (bear in mind level 2).


    It is extremely difficult to do a unit on visual merchandising without having worked in that field and having resources like a mock shop or very good contacts with retailers for visits etc..
    I have a level 2 assignment but was very practical with the benefit of having a mock shop.

    Could you suggest changing it to unit 29 - general retailing? Much easier!
    Best of luck.
  3. Hi is there any chance you could send me the level 2 assignment? I am going to email the HOD and see what he says about it!


  4. Hi,

    Have emailed it to you now!
  5. Hi - I am in the process of preparing assignment briefs for UNIT 22 Visual Merchandising for BTEC level 2 Business - I have already organised and carried out a trip to Westfield Shopping centre with the current Y11 classes for preparation and research work. Is it possible for you to send me your level 2 assignment to look over for additional ideas?? Many thanks iin anticipation!
  6. Hi there,

    I am an NQT and was given this unit to teach at the beginning of the year. I have recently finished and moved onto unit 29. I can send through the resources that I have got.I agree with everyone in that it is a very difficult unit to teach. I can email you what I have got?

    Oh has anyone taught unit 29? I am struggling with ideas for this unit. My email address is joanneb3ll@googlemail.com

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,
