Description: The Wairoa College Digital Technologies department believes that any student who wishes to
study Digital Technologies should be allowed to do so. Our responsibility is to provide each student with a
course appropriate to their current ability in Digital Technologies, their future aspirations, and prepare
them for the future’s technology-oriented workforce.
This course is totally flexible: students will build an individual learning programme tailored to their own
level, pace, interests, and career goal. Even students just looking to pick up a few extra credits are welcome.
Students may choose from the wide range of Achievement Standards and Unit Standards available in
subjects such as productivity software, digital graphics design, multimedia (videos, music), website design,
robotics, coding, games design, hardware and networking, databases, and more.
Students will be challenged and stretched, asked to identify problems and opportunities, find digital
technology-based solutions, and implement them; these valuable transferable skills will serve them not
only in the digital sector but in all aspects of life. We teach using a specific set of high quality tools (including
Office 365, Photoshop, and InDesign) but offer the flexibility for students to trial, analyse, and (with
teacher permission) use alternative tools to solve issues in their own way.

Vocational pathways: This course provides crucial technological skills necessary for almost any industry.
Specialist careers can include digital artists, professional designers, video editors, musicians and sound
engineers, website designers makers, electrical engineers, programmers, app designers, game makers,
testers, localisers, hardware repairers, network administrators, database designers and administrators,
and many more.
