Information Technology and Business
Within the Information Technology and Business department, students from Years 7 to 12 have an opportunity to experience a variety of subjects that enhance their learning.
Business practices involve the use of innovation, entrepreneurial creativity, strategic planning, management, marketing, communication and information and communication technologies. Information and communication technologies impact upon the ways people do business – for example, the ways that people interact, trade, and manage records. Information and communication technologies can be used to enhance business activities and produce high-quality outcomes.
The empowerment of students to become fully active members of their community and to be lifelong learners is essentially the focus of business and information and communication technology.
Information Technology and Business electives are available to students from Year 9, where they can choose to study subjects in Business Education and/or Software Applications.
In Year 10, students can continue these courses as well as selecting either Practical Bookkeeping, Everyday Law or Programming. These three courses are introductions to the Authority subjects of Accounting, Legal Studies and Information Processing Technology respectively. Students in Senior School also have the option to study the Authority Registered subject Social and Community Studies – Business.
Students studying subjects in this area are afforded a number of extra-curricular opportunities, including participation in the annual CQUniversity Business Challenge and a trip to Brisbane to visit places such as the Supreme Court Building and Boggo Road Jail.
