This course covers business formation, function and management of a small business. Important ideas are developed in the classroom and also through links with the local business community. To help bring out the entrepreneur in our students we run a three day Business Challenge in Term 1. The internal assessments are all research based and cover recruitment and marketing, as well as running a small business to produce and sell at the school Market Day. This course includes two external NCEA examinations, it is a stepping stone in business that leads to taking a Commerce course at university.
