Business and Law Outreach information for teachers

The College of Business and Law runs events and outreach throughout the academic year for high school students. Activities range from class presentations and hosting the Young Enterprise Scheme E-Day in Canterbury, through to workshops to support student learning.


Our Outreach Programme aims to:

  • encourage an appreciation of the business world and legal community
  • emphasise both the satisfaction and exciting career opportunities that tertiary level commerce and law study provides
  • support the commerce and humanities teaching community
  • develop New Zealand's future business and law leaders.

The programme targets secondary school students with a range of activities to extend and encourage students in their business studies, while also assisting teachers in their professional development.

If you are a high school teacher, particularly in accounting, economics, social sciences, information technology, business studies and humanities subjects, and you'd like to arrange a visit to our College with your class or request a presentation to your students, please contact the Marketing and Outreach coordinators in the College of Business and Law.
