Commerce has emerged in the new curriculum as a replacement for Economics and Accounting at L1. In 2024 NetNZ will be providing this course.
Commerce is a fascinating field that allows us to explore and understand the workings of our society. In this course, ākonga will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills, and values necessary to smoothly navigate and actively participate in the economic world. They will gain insights into how decision-making shapes the economic landscape and the importance of sustainability within it. Throughout the course, they will explore accounting, economics, and business concepts and models that will help them analyze and solve real-world problems. By studying commerce, ākonga will not only gain valuable insights, but also develop the necessary tools to make informed decisions that contribute to a sustainable future.
Get ready to embark on an exciting journey where we explore the fascinating world of commerce together!
Ākonga will learn that decision-making is necessitated by scarcity and that decisions are informed by a variety of cultural perspectives and lenses. Learning and assessment will examine Māori, Pacific, and different approaches to commerce, and business models from whānau and organisation contexts.
