L3 Horticulture & Sustainability - Semester A

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Neville

L3 Horticulture & Sustainability - Semester A

This course can be focused around Sustainability or Horticulture (or a mixture of both) depending on student interest.  

Sustainability offers three internal assessments with a total of 15 credits meaning that UE can be achieved in the sustainability learning area (this needs to be completed over both Semester A and B for UE ).  The standards include: creating a strategy for sustainability, taking a personal action based on the strategy, and the evaluation of a marine reserve (a field trip is required for this standard, either to Goat Island or Long Bay-Okura Marine Reserve).

Horticulture offers two internal assessments, a research project and an extended investigation.  

If you would like this course to count as an approved course for University Entrance, then you must take both semesters.


Prior Learning & Prerequisites

The Level 2 Action Internal is useful prior knowledge for a sustainability based course. 

Some prior horticultural knowledge (L1 or L2 Horticulture standards) is recommended for the Horticultural course.

In order to achieve in either of these areas, it is recommended that the course is taken for a full year. 

If you would like this course to count as an approved course for University Entrance, then you must take both semesters.

If you wish to take Level 3 Sustainable Horticulture but did not take the subject in Year 12, you will need to explain why you wish to take the course in the notes section when you select this course.
