COURSE PLANNING
The following information has been prepared to help you select your Year 13 course for next

                                                 4
SELECTING YOUR SUBJECT CHOICES
Year 13 students have 5 classes plus 1 class of supervised study. Your course selection will be
made in school in Week 5, Term 3. Faculty Leaders will talk with you about your subject
choices before entry is made.

Please ensure you have read the information in this booklet and possibly the Year 12 course
booklet, about subjects you are interested in taking. Discuss your choices with your parents
/ caregivers.

We will try to fulfil the wishes of students and their parents / caregivers in selecting courses,
but the school reserves the right to limit or modify classes according to:

-   the ability and needs of the student
-   available staffing, resources and timetable restrictions.

                 STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL LEARNING NEEDS
              Supported students will have programmes tailored to their
              specific needs. Deans and staff involved with these students will
              help plan their individual programmes. Please make contact with
              the appropriate staff if you would like to discuss your ideas.

COURSE CONFIRMATION
Your course will be confirmed at re-enrolment Tuesday 21st January 2020, between 10am and
2pm in the Library.

Your acceptance into a subject for 2020 will depend on your 2019 NCEA results.

Six Vocational Pathways sectors have been established

    Construction and Infrastructure
    Creative Industries
    Manufacturing and Technology
    Primary Industries

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

   Achieve NCEA Level 2
   Meet the NCEA Literacy and Numeracy requirements
   Gain 60 Level 2 credits from recommended 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.
