Fast Facts:
      English is compulsory at Level 1 – this is to enable students to gain Level Literacy.
      Maths is compulsory at Level 1 if you have not yet gained numeracy.
      It is recommended to take a maths course and a science course to keep options open
       for future study and career pathways

How many courses will I be taking?
You need to be taking 5 courses at the appropriate level.

Why do I need to pick back up courses?
Some courses are taught at the same time. Sometimes courses don’t run in a particular year
because not enough students want to take the course or because a key teacher leaves. It is
important to select backups that will keep your options open leading into your chosen
career pathways.

Do I need to travel out of town for any of the courses?
All Level 1 courses are taught at Opotiki College. The only courses that are not taught at the
College are some STEP UP Level 2 and 3 Courses. They are held in Whakatane and transport
is provided free of charge. If you are a bus student you will need to ensure that you can be
at College by 8am.

Can I enrol in a Trades Academy Course?
Yes. We offer Trades Academy Courses at Opotiki College to all Senior Students. However,
preference is given to students completing Level 2.

Where can I get help of more information?
Each page lists a ‘Contact Teacher’ who will be able to address your questions about each
course. You can also get help from the Kaiarahi staff, Guidance staff, Learning advisory (LA)
Teachers and subject teachers. Finally, don’t forget to talk things through with your
parents/caregivers.

What are UE Approved Subjects?
Applicants to New Zealand universities require credits in approved subjects. These are
referred to as UE Approved subjects.

                                                                                                4

Process for selecting your Courses:
When choosing your courses it is important you plan ahead and think about the courses that
will lead you to your chosen career pathway. If you are unsure about your intended career
pathway, then choose courses that keep your options open, but that will challenge you and
provide you with success and enjoyment.

NCEA Information
NCEA Level 1

An NCEA Level 1 Certificate is received when a student has achieved:
          1. 80 credits at any level
          2. Level 1 Literacy (10 Level 1 Literacy credits)
          3. Level 1 Numeracy (10 Numeracy credits)

NCEA Level 2

An NCEA Level 2 Certificate is received when a student has achieved:
          1. 60 credits at Level 2 or above (plus 20 credits from any Level)
          2. Level 1 Literacy (10 Level 1 Literacy credits)
          3. Level 1 Numeracy (10 Numeracy credits)

NCEA Level 3

An NCEA Level 3 Certificate is received when a student has achieved:
           1.         60 credits at Level 3 or above (plus 20 credits from Level 2 or above)
           2.         Level 1 Literacy (10 Level 1 Literacy credits)
           3.         Level 1 Numeracy (10 Numeracy credits)

University Entrance

University Entrance (UE) is received when a student has achieved:
                  1. Level 3
                  2. 14 credits each, in three UE approved subjects
                  3. UE Literacy (10 credits at L2 or above: 5 credits each in reading and
                      writing.)
A general rule is that courses that offer unit standards are NOT UE approved, and cannot
contribute to UE Literacy

                                                                                               6
Ōpōtiki College - 2019 Course Selection Guide - L1-3 - Sporty.co.nz
Standards

Each standard has a defined credit value (number of credits able to be achieved from that
learning).
Students can achieve two types of standard - unit standards and achievement standards.
   Unit standards (US) are competency based
   Achievement standards (AS) are New Zealand curriculum based
  Each credit equates to approximately 10 hours of learning time e.g. a 3 credit assessment
  will require approximately 30 hours of learning in and out of class.

How standards are achieved

Teachers ensure that students are prepared for assessment. If students pass the
assessment, the standard is achieved. If they meet the criteria, they achieve the standard,
and gain credits towards a qualification.
Some standards are internally assessed by teachers during the year. Other standards are
assessed externally by NZQA at the end of the year e.g. in an exam or by a portfolio of work.

Internal Assessment & External Assessment

Internal assessments are used to assess skills and knowledge that cannot be tested in an
exam, e.g. speeches, research projects and performances.
Most external assessments are by examination at the end of the year. For some subjects,
e.g. Technology or Art, students submit a portfolio of their work at the end of year.

Assessment grades

The grades that a student can earn depend on the type of standard being assessed.
For unit standards all grades may be available, but usually there are just two grades:
  Achieved (A) for meeting the criteria of the standard
  Not achieved (N) if a student does not meet the criteria of the standard
For achievement standards, there are four grades:
  Achieved (A) for a satisfactory performance
  Merit (M) for very good performance
  Excellence (E) for outstanding performance
  Not achieved (N) if students do not meet the criteria of the standard

Endorsements

Course Endorsement - If a student achieves 14 Excellence credits in an individual course they
gain an Excellence Course Endorsement; if they achieve 14 Merit and Excellence credits they
gain a Merit Endorsement. Note: This must include 3 credits internally and 3 credits
externally.

Certificate Endorsement - If a student gains Level 1, 2 or 3 with 50 credits at Excellence they
gain an Excellence Endorsement; if they get 50 credits of Merit and Excellence they gain a
Merit Endorsement.

     Opotiki College is a member of the Volcanics eLearning Community.
Contact Teacher: Mrs Lynette Douglas
Email: lynetted@opotikicol.school.nz
As a member of Volcanics, we are able to provide students with access to teachers from
other schools nationally through eLearning. Students are able to use this opportunity to
resolve a ‘timetable clash’ or to study a different course or study at a different level. 3000
students study this way nationally.

Each eLearning course will have one or more of the following learning components:
    Paper based (Workbooks, Textbooks and Notes)
    An online component accessed through an online learning environment such as;
       Google Classroom or Google Docs.
    Video Conferencing (VC) or web based conferencing using school laptops.

   All courses offer NZQA Achievement Standards and/or Unit Standards. Communication is
   maintained through video-conferencing, Skype, email and through the online learning
   environment.

   Please note that acceptance into a virtual course is dependant upon available
   resources,the level of student enrolment and timing of the enrolment. Sometimes
   students will be on a waiting list for a short time.

   Acceptance into eLearning courses will also be determined by a recommendation that
   the student is sufficiently self-motivated and has the ability to work with less direct
   teacher supervision.

   Studying by correspondence is not an option choice. Dual enrolments with Te Aho o
   TeKura Pounamu are only available in specific and limited circumstances. A timetable
   clash alone is not sufficient reason for an application for enrolment to be successful.

   For information aboujt correspondence study see Mrs Lynette Douglas, or email
   lynetted@opotikicol.school.nz

Guidelines to selecting a course
Before making course selections, students should do the following:

   1. Read this 2019 Course Selection Guide
   2. Talk with their parents / caregivers and LA about their career options and find out the
      courses which are the best fit
   3. Talk with the Careers & Pathway staff in the Discovery Centre or their Kaiarahi if they
      need extra help.

Please feel free to contact your child’s LA or Kaiarahi for further help at any time. You can do
this through calling the school office (07- 315 7022) to make an appointment or get the email
address of that staff member.

Level 1 Literacy

English is compulsory at Level 1. NCEA Levels 1-3 are able to be gained once Level 1 Literacy
(and Numeracy) is completed. Level 1 Literacy can be gained through:

      Specified achievement standards (AS)- (minimum total of 10 credits), or
      Unit standards (US) - portfolio of three literacy unit standards (total of 10
       credits - all three required).

Level 1 Numeracy

NCEA Levels 1-3 are able to be gained once Level 1 Numeracy (and Literacy) is completed.
Numeracy should have been completed in Year 10. However, it is highly recommended that
students select an Achievement Standards Maths class at Level 1 to ensure that access to
career and tertiary pathways is enabled.

Rūmaki

Te Reo Māori and Te Ao Tangata are compulsory at Level 1 for students who have been
