Throughout this course they will investigate entrepreneurs and discover how to work out profit and loss and making financial decisions for small businesses. They will then create, design and sell a product, e.g. a craft item, food item,jewellery etc. for a profit - which will be kept by the students.
As part of this class students may be assessed using one Achievement Standard:
Accounting Achievement Standard 90981 – Make a financial decision for an individual or group – Internally assessed – 3 credits.
