Level 3 Economics
Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Reddy
LEARNING ACTIVITIES: Level 3 Economics provides an understanding of how decisions are made about the use of scarce resources and an understanding of economic activity that enables participation in that economy. The course develops skills in thinking, investigation, analysis, interpretation and decision making. It is divided into three sections: Resource allocation via the market system, allocation via the public sector, and aggregate economic activity and policy.
This course provides a foundation for further study at tertiary institutions and prepares students to work as an economist, statistician, policy analyst, and elected government representative. It also is a good one year course providing general educational skills for everyday living.
