What will I learn?

The Level 2 course is a practical course. You will set up and run a real business, a business making real products and using real money. In 2017 you will participate in the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES), a nationwide programme providing you with authentic learning opportunities and the chance to win national awards.

How is this course assessed?

Learning in Business Studies is assessed through internal and external achievement standards. The focus is on learning the skills needed to effectively plan for and run a business.

Will there be any FAO?  (Further Assessment Opportunities)

No. The learning takes place over most of the year, from the start of Term 1 till the end of Term 3. The size and scale of the project means that FAO's are not able to be offered.

What is the Young Enterprise Exam?

All students participating in The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme are eligible to enter the Young Enterprise exam. This highly prestigious exam reviews the experience of a YES student in relation to a relevant case study. Students have the opportunity to demonstrate their transfer of learning from their own experience to that of a real company. The exam is worth 14 credit equivalents at Level 3. The student with the top exam mark will take out the National Excellence Award and scholarship from the Massey University Business School.
