NCEA Level 3 Tourism
Teacher in Charge: J. Bennett
Year 13 Tourism builds on Year 12 but the course is more in depth and requires challenging individual projects as well as verbal assessments. Students start by building on their knowledge of Tourism terminology and concepts before looking at the economic importance of tourism to New Zealand. They take a virtual trip around Australia and the Pacific, understanding more about these popular destinations before settling into creating dramatic presentations about Queenstown and finishing off the year learning Te Reo for use in a Tourism workplace.
