Level 2 Commerce

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Kuperus

Level 2 Commerce 

At level 2, Commerce students have the opportunity to take part in the 'Young Enterprise' programme that involves setting up and running a small business. This involves working in a small team and creating a product to sell and hopefully make some profit. Teams need to meet a number of benchmarks through the year like presenting a pitch to a Dragons Den, providing evidence of marketing and selling the product at market days. Students will each have assigned 'directors' roles and be responsible for that aspect of their company. For example Finance director, CEO, Marketing director or being in charge of Production. This course requires resilience and teamwork as well as the ability to problem solve and communicate effectively with people in the business community.


There are also a number of Financial Literacy unit standards that can be completed: Banking, Insurance, Future Planning, Budgeting as an alternative or for supplementing credits.

For further information see:  Mr Kuperus.
