All marks gained in formal assessments can be used by NZQA should a boy be unable to sit his NCEA exams and
compassionate consideration is granted.

Each boy is expected to track his own progress towards achieving his NCEA goals. His Dean and other staff will
also monitor his progress and have conversations with him regarding the progress he is making. Where necessary,
parents and caregivers will be included in these conversations.

*The structure and timings listed above are based on the 2018 assessment and reporting calendar. These
are subject to change. Any changes will be fully communicated to boys, parents and caregivers.

What Option Choices Can I Make?
The selection of an appropriate course of study is
very important. Many boys are uncertain about their
career choices If this is the case, it is important to
make selections that are broad enough to keep

Dilworth School offers a wide variety of options and
it is usual that all subjects run in each particular
year. However, if class sizes are too small, a
particular subject may not be offered for that year.

Each year the question of dropping a subject is raised.
Current school policy is to disallow that, except in
circumstances where the teaching staff feel that it is in
the best interests of the student to do so. Such decisions
are not made lightly and only made after consulting
family.

How important are Parent /
Teacher Interviews?

There are two parent-teacher interviews in the school
year.

All parents are expected to attend.

If parents are unable to attend Parent / Teacher
Interviews for some special reason, the school is always
willing to make arrangements for alternative interviews,
particularly for Country Parents.

Parents are encouraged to maintain contact and should
feel comfortable about making enquiries about their
son’s progress at any time during the year. The best
arrangement is to make contact with the Dean for your
son’s House, who will then advise on the best course of
action to take.

University Entrance

English for Auckland University
The University of Auckland has introduced a new entrance requirement – the Academic English Language
Requirement.

Automatic entry will be restricted to students who gain a minimum of seventeen credits in English at Level 2 or 3.
Students who do not meet this standard can still gain places at the University but will be required to pass a specified
for-credit course in Academic English in their first year of study at the University.

Entrance to Limited Entry Courses
Acceptance into some courses requires more than the minimum entrance.
These courses require a rank score. They are listed later in this book.

Rank scores are calculated on the best 80 Level 3 credits achieved.
   •    2 points are awarded for every ‘Achieved’ credit
   •    3 points are awarded for every ‘Merit’ credit
   •    4 points are awarded for every ‘Excellence’ credit

                                                         intimidating decision! It’s ok not to know exactly what you want to

    THE CAREER DEVELOPMENT COMPETENCIES

    The Careers Department at Dilworth School provides a range of opportunities and experiences that encourages
    students to make informed choices about their future career pathways.

    Our ultimate aim is to empower our
    students to self-manage their career and
    personal development throughout their
    lives. We want them to continue to do this
    long after they leave school, and what they
    learn at school is a crucial start.

    To give our boys a great head start, we
    aim to help them develop an identified set
    of career management
    competencies. Each competency involves
    a set of understandings, skills and
    attitudes required to successfully manage
    life, learning and work.

    The competencies, which are based on international research and practice, are grouped into three areas:

•   DEVELOPING SELF AWARENESS

    Young people need to be able to understand themselves and the influences on them. We seek to assist them
    to:

          -     Build and maintain a positive self-concept. For example – knowing who they are; their interests, skills,
                qualities and cultural and personal values.
          -     Interact positively and effectively with others
          -     Change and grow throughout life

                                                                 10
•   EXPLORING OPPORTUNITIES

    Students should be able to investigate opportunities in learning and work and relate them to themselves. We
    aim to encourage them to:

        -    Participate in lifelong learning to support life and work goals
        -    Locate information and use it effectively
        -    Understand the relationship between work, society and the economy.

•   DECIDING AND ACTING

    Young people need to be able to make and adjust their plans, to manage change and transition, and to take
    appropriate action. Careers Counselling and Coaching can empower students to:

        -    Make life- and career- enhancing decisions
        -    Make and review learning and career plans
        -    Act appropriately to manage their own careers.

                                                                          DREAMCATCHER

TERTIARY STUDY OPTIONS

    In NZ there are lots of different ways to learn and places to study at tertiary level. There are eight universities, 20
    polytechnics and institutes of technology, 40 Industry Training Organisations that offer apprenticeship training (to do
    workplace training through an ITO you will need to have a job) , and many, many more options through private
    training organisations. The important thing is to find the right fit for you, and your career ambitions.

    UNIVERSITY STUDY

                                   As all of our Universities in NZ are well respected in the world rankings, so whichever
                                   University you choose will offer you a great education. The key is to pick the
                                   university that best fits how, where and what you want to study!

                                    The most common university programme is the undergraduate degree. Your
                                    first degree is called a bachelor's degree and usually takes three or four years of
                                    full-time study to complete.

                                    Degrees can be general, such as a Bachelor of Arts, or focused on a specific
                                    vocation, such as the Bachelor of Veterinary Science.

    A general degree is a good option if you are interested in a certain area, but don't have a specific job or favourite
    subject area in mind. As you work through your degree you can try out a range of subjects, then decide on a subject
    area to specialise in.

    General degrees give you a wide range of skills in research, information gathering and problem solving. Degrees in
    specific subjects also provide these skills and may also lead to work in a specific job or industry.

    Conjoint Degrees

    A conjoint programme lets you pursue two undergraduate bachelor’s degrees at the same time.

    You may have the opportunity to begin a conjoint programme in the first or second year of study, and most
    programmes can be completed within five years, depending on the University and/or the combination you opt for.

    A conjoint programme often only requires just one extra course to be taken each year (compared to a normal full-
    time load).

    WORKPLACE TRAINING
    Training on the job can be a good alternative to formal tertiary study. You
    can earn money and pick up skills. In many cases you can also work
    toward a national certificate, or gain credits as part of the New Zealand
    Qualifications Framework. There are two main ways to do on-the-job
    training:

    New Zealand Apprenticeships

•   Includes the support of an apprenticeship co-ordinator, who checks your
    progress on a regular basis.
•   You will need to find a job in your desired trade before you can start an
    apprenticeship
•   Please note: A restricted driver’s licence is a requirement to gain an
    apprenticeship, so we recommend you start the process of gaining your
    learner and restricted licences as soon as possible!

    If you don't qualify for a New Zealand Apprenticeship, you may still be

                                                              12
able to do industry training.

     Workplace training

•    Available at school through application to the Gateway programme
•    Can be done in all industries that are covered by an industry training organisation (ITO).

     ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR UNIVERSITY

     As a guide, the entry requirements for The University of Auckland are included in this Handbook. The
     requirements for other Universities may be different but this will offer you a good indication of what you may need in
     your area of study.

     For specific entry requirements for other Universities, please visit their website.

     RANK SCORE

     A rank score is used by many universities to compare students applying for a course and/or to set a minimum entry
     standard.
         •    Your top 80 level 3 credits (from approved subjects) are used in the calculation
         •    Up to a maximum of five level 3 approved subjects are used
         •    If more than 80 credits are gained, the highest value credits are used.
         •    Level 3 credits gained in year 12 can be used.

     Your rank score is calculated by awarding the following points for up to 24 credits in each approved subject. The
     maximum rank score is 320.

       Excellence                                                        4 points

       Merit                                                             3 points

       Achieved                                                          2 points

     NOTE: The majority of Conjoint (combined) degrees require higher rank scores of 210, with the exception of
     Engineering (270), Health Science (250) and Nursing (220)

     ACADEMIC ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT

     In 2016, the University of Auckland will introduce an Academic English Language requirement into all of its
     undergraduate programmes.

         •     You must have gained the University Entrance Literacy Standard and a minimum of 17 credits in English at
               Level 2 and/or 3

     If you do not meet this requirement, it will not affect whether you are offered a place on a programme but you will
     need to pass an Academic English Language course during your first year of study.

Transition Education
Introduction                                        Year 11 Transition
