VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS AWARD

     Six Vocational Pathways sectors have been established
           Construction and Infrastructure
           Creative Industries
           Manufacturing and Technology
           Primary Industries
           Service Industries
           Social and Community Services

     Within each sector, specific Achievement Standards and Unit Standards have been
     identified as either recommended standards or sector related standards.

     Standards you have achieved may
          show you where your strengths lie
          show employers where your strengths and abilities lie

     The standards achieved may contribute towards one or more Vocational Pathways Awards
     that may be in any one of the six sectors listed above.

     To receive a Vocational Pathways Award you must
      Ÿ Achieve NCEA Level 2
      Ÿ Meet the NCEA Literacy and Numeracy requirements
      Ÿ Gain 60 Level 2 credits from recommended standards
      Ÿ Of the 60 credits, 20 Level 2 credits must be from sector related standards

     At present you can achieve a Vocational Pathways Award only at Level 2.

     The course outlines that follow, show where standards assessed against may contribute towards a Level 2
     Vocational Pathways Award.

     You can check your progress towards any of the Vocational Pathways Award in your academic record.

SUBJECT INFORMATION
The following pages contain information about the full
year Year 11 courses we plan to offer here at FAHS –
Feilding High School in 2018.

Please read the information carefully, especially
  • entry requirements for the Year 11 subject.
  • where the subject may lead in Year 12.
  • entry to the next level of study – you may want to
    check information in the Year 12 and / or Year13
    booklets as well.

It is possible that some the information may change
prior to the start of the 2018 school year. At the start
of next year, your teachers will give you the subject
plan for the year.

                            14
PROGRESSION FROM YEAR 10 INTO YEAR 11
 ENGLISH, MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE COURSES

        IN YEAR 11, ALL STUDENTS MUST BE ENROLLED IN AN
        ENGLISH, A MATHEMATICS AND A SCIENCE COURSE

ENGLISH
All Year 11 students must be in one of the three compulsory English courses at Year 11:
11 English A - 11ENA, 11 English Studies - 11EST, 11 English Skills - 11ESK

11 ENGLISH A - 11ENA
   •   Students who gain Achieved grades or higher throughout Year 10 English can expect
       to be placed in 11 English A by their teacher.
   •   Students wanting to attend University should aim to be placed in an 11 English A class.

11 ENGLISH STUDIES - 11EST
   •   Students who have found aspects of the Year 10 English programme difficult may
       be placed in an 11 English Studies class by their teacher.
   •   Students placed in 11 English Studies will move into 12 English Studies (or Skills).
   •   Students should be aware that placement in an English Studies class will restrict
       some options available to them in Year 12 as some subjects require students to
       be taking 12 English A.

11 ENGLISH SKILLS - 11ESK
   • Students will be placed into an English Skills class at their teacher’s discretion.

                                               15
MATHEMATICS

All Year 11 students must be in one of the three compulsory Mathematics courses at Year 11:
11 Mathematics A - 11MAA, 11 Mathematics Studies - 11MST, 11 Mathematics Skills - 11MSK.

In Year 12 we offer three Mathematics courses: 12 Mathematics, 12 Mathematics Studies, 12
Mathematics Skills.

If a student is aiming to do Year 12 or 13 Mathematics, Chemistry or Physics courses they
should aim to be in 11 Mathematics A.

11 MATHEMATICS A - 11MAA
   • To be placed in 11 Mathematics A, students must achieve well in all assessments,
      especially in the end of year examination.
   • Students need to have particularly good results in Number and Algebra if they are
      going to succeed in 11 Mathematics A.
   • 11 Mathematics A is assessed through both internally assessed and externally
      assessed Achievement Standards.
   • Although you can go through to Year 12 Mathematics courses from 11 Mathematics
      Studies, it is an advantage to have completed 11 Mathematics A as it keeps all options
      open for Year 12.
   • 12 Chemistry and 12 Physics both require students to have 10 and 14 credits
      respectively from 11 Mathematics A or 11 Mathematics Studies, and require 12
      Mathematics or 12 Mathematics Studies as a co-requisite.
   • 13 Physics requires credits from the 12 Mathematics course and recommends
      13 Calculus as a co-requisite.

11 MATHEMATICS STUDIES - 11MST
   • 11 Mathematics Studies offers mostly internally assessed Achievement Standards
      with one externally examined Achievement Standard.
   • Students can progress into either a 12 Mathematics Studies course or
      12 Mathematics Skills course.

11 MATHEMATICS SKILLS - 11MSK
   • 11 Mathematics Skills is assessed using only internal Achievement Standards and
      Unit Standards.
   • The focus in this course will be achieving the 10 credits in Numeracy required for the
      Level 1 NCEA certificate.
   • Students can progress into the Year 12 Mathematics Skills course directly from 11
      Mathematics Skills only if they have achieved 12 credits from Achievement Standards
      – this does not include credits from the additional Unit Standards.

Speak with your Mathematics teacher or the HOF Mathematics if you have questions or
concerns regarding your 11 Mathematics course.

                                              16
SCIENCE

All Year 11 students must be in one of the three compulsory Science courses:
11 Science A - 11SCA, 11 Science Studies - 11SCST, 11 Science Skills - 11SCSK.

There are also two additional 11 Science courses are offered: 11 Chemistry-Biology - 11CHBI,
and 11 Chemistry-Physics - 11CHPH. Students may choose one of these in addition to
11 Science A. See pages 24 and 25 for the details of these courses.

11 SCIENCE A - 11SCA
   •   To be placed in 11 Science A, students must achieve well in all Year 10 assessments
       and the end of year examination.
   •   11 Science A is assessed by a combination of practical based internal Achievement
       Standards and externally assessed Achievement Standards.
   •   To be able to take any of the senior sciences (Biology, Chemistry or Physics), students
       must complete the 11 Science A course.
   •   12 Biology requires students to have completed 11 Science A and achieve 14 credits
       from 11 English A or 11 English Studies.
   •   12 Chemistry requires students to achieve 10 credits in 11 Mathematics A or 11
       Mathematics Studies, and Year 12 Mathematics or 12 Mathematics Studies is a co-
       requisite.
   •   12 Physics requires students to have 14 credits from 11 Mathematics A or 11
       Mathematics Studies. To progress from 12 Physics to 13 Physics students must have
       14 credits from the 12 Mathematics course and 13 Calculus is a co-requisite.

11 SCIENCE STUDIES - 11SCST
   •   11 Science Studies offers internally assessed Achievement Standards.
   •   Students can continue from 11 Science Studies into the 12 Science course only, or gain
       entry into Year 11 Science A for the following year.

11 SCIENCE SKILLS - 11SCSK
   •   11 Science Skills offers internally assessed Achievement Standards and Unit Standards.
   •   Students cannot progress into any Year 12 Science course.
   •   Depending on their achievement in this course, students may progress into
       11 Science A or 11 Science Studies.

Year 10 students need to consider their possible career pathways and the requirements for
tertiary study to ensure their subject choices are suitable. Many career options such as
agriculture, horticulture, engineering, armed forces, health sciences (e.g. both animal and
human including nursing, vet nursing, vet, physiotherapy, dietician etc.) require some science
at Year 12 and / or Year 13. Check with the tertiary provider or the school’s Careers Advisors.

                                               17
YEAR 11 OPTION SUBJECTS

The following pages give a course information and assessment
guidelines for each of the subject options offered to Year 11 students.

There may be changes to the material taught and assessed before the
start of the 2018 school year. Your teachers will give you a full course
outline at the start of next year.

Some subjects may not be offered due to a variety of factors.

Due to small numbers, some classes may run with more than one
level of study.
