NCEA Course Booklet

Year 13

Prerequisites Studying Agribusiness at Level 2 is an advantage. Exclusions A student can take only Business and Enterprise OR Agribusiness, unless approved by the Assistant Principal – Curriculum. Description Agribusiness at Christ's College is a subject which combines Achievement Standards from two different subject areas – agribusiness and agricultural/horticultural science. As such, Agribusiness at Christ's College helps prepare students for a career in the agribusiness world and/or the agricultural sector. Students also learn about the environment, climate change, and sustainability. To assist learning, we have high-calibre guest speakers and field trips to places of interest. It is a fast-paced, fun environment where students engage with real business leaders and grapple with the real problems of running a business in the primary sector.

Topics may include: • Profitability of primary produce • Environmental issues • Strategic investment • Future-proofing • Innovation in the value chain

It will contribute about 20 credits towards NCEA Level 3 and University Entrance, with at least 4 credits externally assessed by examination.

NB: Please note that Agribusiness is not an extension of the Agriculture Certificate offered through the National Trades Academy.
