This course is mainly project based and aims to develop students into independent thinkers and learners who are able to drive their own learning experiences.

The focus of this course is determined by individual students. Students plan their own Business Studies courses with guidance from the LA that usually maps out a pathway that will guide students through NCEA. Other pathways, exclusive of NCEA, can also be developed. Individual enterprise is also supported.

Students in this course will get a high level of individual support from the LA: one to one support is available online, in class, and through mentoring times. Students are also encouraged to work with mentors who can support their activity.

Where appropriate guest speakers from the political and business world are invited to present to students to broaden their awareness of the wider world and to help put their studies into context.
