Level 3 Financial Literacy

L3FLI
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs P. Blud

What will I Learn?
Formerly known as Vocational Mathematics, the focus of this course is Financial Capability. It is designed for students who want to gain knowledge about  various  topics related to their own financial plans and how to manage money.  Credits gained in this course are NOT Mathematics credits, but they DO count towards students’ NCEA credit total.

It is useful if students have their own calculator. While the school has sets available for use at school, students need their own for homework and other out of school activities. The school uses a Jastek. The department has some calculators available for purchase at very competitive prices. Check with the class teacher or Mrs Blud.

Conditions of Assessment
All topics in this course are internally assessed, ie, the school assesses the students.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions are available, but no further assessment opportunities.
