Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. Johnson
What you learn in this course is entirely up to you. There are topics in environmental sustainability, plant production, new uses for old organisms, environmental studies, market research, business structure and cash flow forecasting. An electronics and coding option will be available to students with sufficient prior knowledge. There is only one externally assessed standard in this semester and it is optional. This is an Achievement Standard course which can ultimately take you to tertiary study and a career in primary industries.
Students will choose, in consultation with the Innovative Horticulture Manager, how many standards their individual pathway is made up of based on ability and needs. Typically you will select 12 credits in total.
Field trips, if any, depend on subjects chosen. Allow up to $30.
Some Level 1 Innovative Horticulture Achievement Standards *OR* some Level 1 Standards in Business Studies, Science or Social Sciences. This depends on which subjects you choose. Please consult with the Innovative Horticulture Manager.
Course selection will depend on the option lines and student numbers. There is no guarantee that the courses you select now will all be available for you in 2021.
