NCEA Level 3 Tourism

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Cadman

Recommended Prior Learning

Nil, although having studied Year 12 Tourism would be helpful.

Year 13 Tourism builds on Year 12 but the course is more in depth and requires challenging individual projects as well as class presentations.  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, understanding more about this popular destination before settling into creating a dramatic presentation about Queenstown and finishing off the year learning about cultural attractions in our local area.


  • Tourism: Destination Australia;
  • Describe and promote a NZ destination (Queenstown);
  • Tourism industry;
  • Economic Significance of Tourism; and
  • Identify and explain Cultural Significance.

This course is not a University Entrance approved subject.
