Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Woodland

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.
