1 | P a g e Introduction Tēnā koutou katoa/ Greetings to you all. The purpose of school-home involvement is to connect in-school and out-of-school learning in ways that will support valued outcomes for students. If effective connections are to be developed, teachers need to value the educational cultures of their students’ families and communities, and parents need to learn about and value the educational culture of the school. The principle of ako- reciprocal learning and teaching- is therefore fundamental to developing connections that work (Alton-Lee, Robinson, Hohepa & Lloyd, 2009, p.169) The above statement highlights the importance of school and parents/caregivers working together to support students in making effective transitions at important times in their education pathway.

If you are reading this document, it is highly likely that you have a child who is in their final years of secondary school. As such, it is important to talk with them and help them plan for their future, to gain knowledge and understanding that will prepare them well for life beyond Chanel College and leading into adulthood.

This Course Booklet provides information about what programmes of study are on offer at Chanel College in 2019. We strongly encourage all current Year 10 to Year 12 students to be proactive in making an informed decision about what they wish to study next year. We also request that parents/caregivers take time to discuss these options with your child. Your support and encouragement will be pivotal in assisting your son/daughter to make subject selections and realise their potential. At the top of each page that outlines a course on offer, we have identified the Course Contact person. Please do not hesitate to contact that person or those people, should you have any query regarding the course(s) and requirements.

Additionally, at 6pm on Thursday, 20 September we will host a Course Selection Evening in the school hall for students and parents. You are all warmly invited to come along to find out more information.

Further information is provided that gives a brief overview of NCEA. This section is aimed mainly at senior students who are beginning to move towards the specific areas of study linked to career pathways. Students who are in Years 11 - 13 next year are asked in conjunction with their parents/ caregivers to select their option choices and record these on the school’s KAMAR Portal in their order of preference by Tuesday 25 September 2018. To do this please log into : https://students.chanelcollege.school.nz/student/index.php We hope you find this booklet informative and we look forward to meeting with you to discuss, plan and action your son/daughter’s future education pathway.

6 | P a g e The Senior Curriculum This booklet has been prepared to assist you in planning your future courses at Chanel College over the next one, two or three years. Chanel College encourages all students to realise their potential and to strive to attain academic success, so it is important to understand that to advance in many subject areas there are Entry PRE-REQUISITES. While we try to remove barriers to educational advancement, you must attain certain Achievement Standards or Unit Standards in your subjects in order to continue to the next level.

The school has a clear expectation that all students in Years 11 to 13 will do internal and external assessments for NCEA, in each curriculum area that they are studying for.

If a teacher believes there is a valid reason why a student should not do an external assessment/exam, that teacher must make a case to the Senor Leadership Team for consideration. Thereafter, the student and family will be consulted on the matter also. Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) funding allows the College to offer courses in partnership with other accredited education providers. Chanel College has established very good working relationships with a number of off-site providers including, Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre, UCOL, WELTEC, Whitireia, Southern Institute of Technology, NZ College of Tourism among others.

A number of students will also be encouraged to become involved in the Gateway programme. One or two day Trades Academies like PITA, U Skills and Wellington Trades Academy are also available, to a select number of students The College makes every effort to offer the widest possible range of subject choice and combinations, however subjects chosen by an insufficient number of students may not go ahead. Where this situation occurs possible solutions might include students: * take the subject in a combined or multi-level class * receive subject tuition from a specialist teacher and have peer interactions with students from another school(s) through the use of a video conferencing facility * enrol with the Correspondence School and have supervised study * use STAR funding to take the course in conjunction with an off-site provider The Senior Leadership Team will make the final decision as to which courses will be offered.

9 | P a g e Endorsement Certificates can be 'endorsed' to reflect high achievement in a significant number of standards in an individual course. NCEA Certificate Endorsement If a student gains 50 credits at Excellence, their NCEA certificate will be endorsed with Excellence. Likewise, if a student gains 50 credits at Merit (or Merit and Excellence), their NCEA certificate will be endorsed with Merit. The students Record of Achievement will show the endorsement awards achieved.

Credits earned can count towards an endorsement over more than one year and more than one NCEA level. However, they must be gained at the level of the certificate or above. For example, Level 2 credits will count towards endorsement of a Level 1 NCEA, but Level 1 credits will not count towards endorsement of a Level 2 NCEA.

Course Endorsement Students will gain an endorsement for a course if, in a single school year, they achieve:  14 or more credits at Merit or Excellence at the level that supports the endorsement  at least 3 of these credits are from externally assessed standards and 3 credits are from internally assessed standards. Note: this does not apply to Physical Education, Religious Studies and Level 3 Visual Arts. MyBluePrint - NCEA Tracking App It is very important that students in Year 11 - 13 continually track the number of credits that they have achieved to ensure that they reach their goal by the end of the year This simple app enables students to:  List what Subjects they take and what Standards they will study throughout the year.

Some courses are delivered off site and students attend them for a full day a week during part of the year.

Often any course costs, particularly travel, are subsidised. Courses are provided by the Primary Industry Trades Academy (PITA) at Taratahi, U-Skills Central Schools Academy and the WELTEC Trades Academy. Courses provided at School may be from another provider and could also be for part of a year. For example students use TeKura, Video Conferenceing Courses, and courses from other providers that dont require an off site component.

This type of learning requires a certain level of maturity and independence to succeed. If you wish to consider another subject please make a time to see Mrs Pender and please choose "PATH" in one of your subject selection lines. Students selecting Path will have time allocated in their timetables to ensure they keep up to date with any other subject work they miss. Some of the current course providers and ways of learning * STAR - usually short courses * GATEWAY: - covers a range of delivery types * Correspondence School – normally on line * Video Conference Courses _ the course is delivered with 1 live video lesson per week * Employment Skills/Life Skills * U-Skills Central Schools Academy * PITA Primary Industry Trades Academy at Taratahi * WELTEC Trades Academy .

PATHWAYS/STAR and GATEWAY COURSES 73 | P a g e STAR courses: Level 2 or 3 There are two types of STAR courses available: 1. Short STAR courses are available for ALL students in Years 12-13. They vary in length from 3 days to 10 days. Students will attend a Polytechnic one day per week for the length of the course. Some enable students to gain NCEA credits, some are just taster type courses to check out what is available in an area of study. Availability of these courses is dependent on the course gaining enough enrolments.

2. Full year STAR courses are available in PATHWAYS classes. These courses are a mixture of practical and long distance studies with outside providers. Each student’s programme is drawn up individually. Gateway Courses: Level 2 or 3 These courses also can take a variety of forms – 1. Students can select PATHWAYS as an option line. The main way of learning is by achieving industry based standards in the work place. Students do this by working 1-2 days per week with a host employer. When in the class students use this line to catch up on work missed in other lines on the day(s) they are out and to complete theory industry units.

2. Some students find that the industry they want to try, works better if they attend consecutive days, for example one week per term or a week before the holidays joined onto the holiday period, to give better continuity without disrupting other studies too much. 3. Occasionally a student wishes to study an area where training is not available in a workplace in the Wairarapa and so the student uses the holidays to travel to another area to gain work experience.

Each programme is developed for each student in consultation with the Training Organisation and the host employer. Please note that not all Gateway students will be accepted into a Pathways class. This will be at the discretion of the Transition Department staff and students will be notified prior to subject confirmation if they will be required to select another subject. Some short courses are also done under Gateway: for example Health and Safety and First Aid courses can be provided here. Correspondence School / Video Conference Courses 1. Students who may wish to study a language or other subjects at senior levels not offered by Chanel.

2. Senior students who wish to continue their NCEA studies in an area when the class numbers drop below those needed to form a class. These courses require students to be strong, independent learners able to make use of support resources in the form of emailing / using phone help lines / using Blackboard, Moodle or online support programmes.
