NCEA Level 2 Enterprise Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms G. Sangster


Enterprise studies is an opportunity for students to unleash their inner entrepreneur and experience the start-up world first hand. It is an experiential programme where students set up and run a real business. Each student will form a company, conduct market research, create their own product or service and bring this to market and sell. 

Students will:

  • Learn about business planning and operations
  • Develop a range of personal and business skills
  • Consult with and create networks in their community
  • Learn how to make informed decisions on the use and management of money
  • Have an opportunity to compete in the Young Enterprise Scheme

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
