L3 Business Studies (L3BUS)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. Toft.

Recommended Prior Learning

Entry will be given to students who have gained Level 2 NCEA with at least 14 credits from L2 English. Completion of Year 10 and L1 and L2 Business Studies would be an advantage but are not compulsory.

Level 3 Business Studies runs in conjunction with The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES). 

YES is an experiential program where students set up and run a real business. Each YES company creates their own product or service and brings this to market. 

Through The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme, students will learn about business planning and operations, develop a range of personal and business skills, and consult with and create networks in their community. 

Level 3 Business Studies is worth 19 credits and will count towards University Entrance and can be achieved with an endorsement.
