VCAL VCE INDUSTRY & ENTERPRISE
In this course students have set up a business where they have researched, designed and produced a product or service, which they then sell for a profit. They are required to make a prototype that is tested for saleability by presenting it at an exhibition where the school community gives constructive feedback on. These results were turned into data that can be analysed so that the producer can tweak improvements and make the product or service more saleable and market ready. A social media site is developed to record the students’ progress and to set up an online business. Presentation, marketing and branding are developed throughout the year. The products are professionally photographed and these digital photographs are used for online sales or for marketing purposes.
