Level 3 Agriculture

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Bennett

Agribusiness is fully internally assessed. Students will be able to gain University Entrance. The semester 1 course consists of two achievement standards from Business Studies, but focusing on Agriculture. Students will develop a marketing plan for an innovative product. They will then study bio security and potential problems for New Zealand primary production. This course will provide 10 credits towards UE. Students will need to take the 2nd semester to gain the additional 4 credits to gain UE.  There is no requirement to have taken Agriculture in Year 11 or 12. If students take Year 13 Commerce there may be a double up of some achievement standards and will only be able to count one subject towards UE.  It is likely that students will be timetabled with Year 11 or Year 12 Ag, so students will be expected to work independently.
