Level 1 Business Studies
Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Collier
Business Studies is all about how businesses interact with customers and government, as well as how to record monetary dealings. The course is designed as an introductory course, which can then lead on to Level 2 Business Studies or Accounting.
Business Studies focusses on the features of a small business (up to 20 employees) and how it makes the best decisions to achieve its goals within the constraints of the market, government, and personal beliefs. It also looks at entrepreneurship and innovation as a contribution to business practice.
This course combines theory and practice.

The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
