STAGE 2: BUSINESS INNOVATION
Credits:          20
Pre-requisites:   Nil
Requirements:     Sound literacy skills

Capabilities:
Literacy, numeracy, information and communication technology (ICT) capability, critical and creative
thinking, personal and social capability, ethical understanding.
Subject Description:
In Stage 2 Business Innovation students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and understandings to
engage in designing, sustaining, and transforming business in the modern world. Business Innovation uses
design thinking and assumption-based business planning tools to promote a human-centred approach to
innovation and the transformation of business products, services, and processes.
Students ‘learn through doing’ in Business Innovation, using design thinking and assumption-based
planning processes to anticipate, find, and solve problems. In Business Innovation students engage with
complex, dynamic, real-world problems, to identify and design, test, iterate, and communicate viable
business solutions. Through design thinking and direct involvement in innovation, students not only develop
but also understand and apply their critical and creative thinking skills.
Content:
Students explore at least two of these three key contexts:
   ++ Designing business
   ++ Sustaining business
   ++ Transforming business.
Through these contexts, students develop and apply their understanding of the following underpinning
learning strands:
   ++ innovation
   ++ decision-making and project management
   ++ financial literacy and information management
   ++ global, local, and digital perspectives.
Students gain an understanding of fundamental business concepts and ideas, including:
   ++ the nature and structure of business
   ++ sources of finance
   ++ forms of ownership
   ++ legal responsibilities and requirements.
Assessment:
Students demonstrate evidence of their learning through the following assessment types:

Subject Description:
Design, Technology and Engineering: Material Solutions, is a 10-credit subject at Stage 1. Students use
the design and realisation process to engineer solutions for the development of products or systems. The
subject provides a flexible framework that encourages students to be creative and innovative. They apply
critical problem-solving skills and incorporate technologies to address design problems and challenges. This
subject incorporates the transfer of interdisciplinary skills and knowledge and promotes individualised and
inquiry-based learning. Design, Technology and Engineering provides opportunities for students to apply
engineering processes and use new and evolving technologies.
In Stage 1 students use the design and realisation process. They learn to create a design brief that provides
the basis for the development of potential solutions to design problems and review design features,
processes, materials and production techniques to assist with the realisation of the solution.
Students analyse influences on a product or system including ethical, legal, economic, and/or sustainability
issues. They consider the practical implication of these issues on society or design solutions.
Students apply appropriate skills, processes, procedures and techniques whilst implementing safe work
practices in the creation of the solution.
Students develop the ability to identify, create, initiate, and develop products, processes, or systems.
Students learn to use tools, materials, and systems safely and competently to complete a product. They
explore technologies in both contemporary and historical settings, and analyse the impacts of technology,
including social, environmental, and sustainable consequences.
Content:
Students use of a diverse range of framed furniture manufacturing technologies such as tools, machines,
and/or systems to create a product using timber-based materials.
Students produce outcomes that demonstrate the knowledge and skills associated with using systems,
processes, and materials such as a framed table.
Assessment:
Assessment consists of the following assessment types:

Subject Description:
Stage 2 Design, Technology and Engineering: Material Solutions, is a 20 credit subject.
Students use design thinking to engineer solutions for the development of carcass constructed cabinets.
The subject provides a flexible framework that encourages students to be creative, innovative and
enterprising in their chosen context. They apply critical problem solving skills and incorporate technologies
to address design problems and challenges. This subject incorporates the transfer of interdisciplinary
skills and knowledge and promotes individualised and inquiry based learning. Design, Technology and
Engineering provides opportunities for students to apply engineering processes and use new and evolving
technologies.
In Stage 2 Students use an iterative design process to explore possible solutions to a problem or
opportunity. They investigate and analyse the purpose, design features, materials and production
techniques used in diverse situations including industry, community and tertiary organisations. This
information is used to create a design brief that provides the basis for the development of potential
solutions. The importance of the design process as a preliminary to the realisation process is emphasised, as
is ongoing evaluation of the solution and vise versa.
Students analyse influences on a solution including ethical, legal, economic, and/or sustainability issues.
They consider the practical implication of these issues on society or design solutions. Students apply
appropriate skills, processes, procedures and techniques whilst implementing safe work practices in the creation of the
solution.
