The University Pathways – Stage 1 (UP1) is designed for students who want to begin their career in Business with a program that is different from High School, but still provides them a pathway to universities. UP1 gives students effective technical skills in a broad range of business areas. UP1 students prepare themselves to be involved in a simulated enterprise and take the role of employees in the simulation. UP1 covers the required curriculum for the Certificate III in Business.
