Principal’s Notes

Career Planning for Students
As you begin to select your course of study for 2019 there are a number of factors you must
carefully consider when making your decision.

1. Ownership of your learning
   This occurs when you take time to set goals for yourself in terms of your learning and how
   it relates to your future. Career planning and building your life begins with taking
   responsibility for your choices and developing a vision for your future.

2. Developing a vision
   Time spent planning for your future is a challenging task but is the key to your success.
   Here are a number of strategies to work through:

        •   Work with your House Group teacher and/or Dean to write a well-considered plan
        •   Set goals for your learning and achievement for 2019 and beyond eg. NCEA Goals
        •   Pursue excellence in all your tasks and activities
        •   Know the skills you have and the skills you need to develop, to be the very best
            you can be

3. Practical issues to consider when choosing subjects

        • Keep your options as broad as possible for as long as possible
        • Know how subjects develop through the senior school, for example: Level 1
          Science can become Physics, Chemistry and Biology at Levels 2 and 3
        • Know what the entry requirements are for particular jobs and/or courses of study at
          universities or polytechnics. Check www.careers.govt.nz
        • Get good information and advice from your Careers Advisor (Mrs Morgan) and/or
          employers, about what subjects you need and at what level
        • Consider the subjects that you are interested in and have ability in, these classes
          will help you achieve your best and may help you see future career options
        • Future proof your learning, by gaining skills which will help you to continue learning
          throughout your life. Work places will demand this as change in the work force
          becomes constant. You will need to:
           ⬧       communicate well, orally and in writing
           ⬧       work co-operatively with others
           ⬧       use a range of information technologies
           ⬧       cope with and adapt to constant change
           ⬧       be punctual and reliable
           ⬧       be a good person

Choosing your programme of study for 2019 is an important task. Seek assistance and advice
from your parents, your House Group teacher, class teachers, Heads of Departments, Deans
and Mrs Morgan. You will be most successful when these decisions are carefully planned and
fit with your own interests and needs. Please do not hesitate in seeking help with this task.

Good planning

Alternative courses
   A range of programmes exist to meet the diverse needs of students.

   Special Needs/ Gifted and Talented Education Programmes (GATE)
   Students with Special Needs including GATE may be invited to enter alternative programmes
   that better meet their learning needs. They may also apply for special assessment conditions

   Students will typically spend each Friday out at EIT following a programme of study for their
   area of interest. For more information refer to 202/302 Trades Academy.

   STAR Courses
   A number of Secondary/Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) courses link students to
   Polytechnics or other providers for short term courses. These courses are often in the holidays
   for levels 1-3 and provide students with work related learning. Mrs Morgan (STAR
   Coordinator) will offer these courses to meet individual student needs and interest.

   Video Conferencing and Correspondence Study
   If there is a subject not offered by Tamatea High School or for which there is an unresolvable
   timetable clash there are other opportunities available for self-motivated learners. These are
   opportunities to study through Te Kura Pounamu (the Correspondence School) or through the
   VLN via the Baylink cluster of schools. To find out more see Mrs Morgan.

    Students who apply must:
       •      be self-motivated, well organised and committed to achieving
      •       have an excellent attendance record
      •       have the necessary pre-requisites for the course (e.g. a pass in externals
              of a previous NCEA level)
      •       gain permission from their dean and parents

NCEA Guide: Mobile App
To help parents and employers better understand NCEA, NZQA has developed an app designed
for mobile devices - phones and tablets.

Called NCEA Guide, the app is for parents, whānau and employers and provides quick and easy
access to key information about NCEA.

NCEA Guide includes key content about the structure of NCEA, how the qualification is used after
studying, how credits work, and how endorsements are earned. Users can also choose to view the
content in English or Te Reo.
Importantly, parents and whānau can also get information about how they can support family
members studying towards gaining their secondary school qualification.

For employers, content focusses on what they can expect to see when job candidates show them
documents detailing their qualifications and what they have studied.

The NCEA Guide App is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

                                                                                                   5
National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA)
NCEA (the National Certificate of Educational Achievement) has three levels: Levels 1, 2 and 3.
These are the first three levels of the National Qualification Framework’s eight levels, with higher
levels studied at polytechnics, universities and other tertiary providers.

Students gain credits through:
                                                      Excellence

     A student who wishes to study for a degree at a New Zealand Polytechnic or University
            disadvantages themselves if they do not plan a course which gives them
                              five approved subjects at Level 3.

                                                                                                7
Gaining Admission to a New Zealand University

Students who are applying for admission to a New Zealand University must gain both:
      • University Entrance
      • Selection into the specific university degree programme through their rank
         score/points.

Rank score/Points are calculated from a student’s top 80 credits at Level 3 or higher with a
maximum of 24 credits per subject over five approved subjects.
          • credits at Excellence = 4 points
          • credits at Merit = 3 points
          • credits at Achieved = 2 points

Examples for Entrance to an undergraduate degree in 2018:
Victoria University
               • Guaranteed Entry Score                                    150 points

University Entrance: Information for Parents and Caregivers
Research recently undertaken at the University of Auckland found many school leavers were
missing out on University Entrance because of unsuitable NCEA choices. They recommended the
following

   1. Understand NCEA.
   2. Plan from Year 9 (as many subjects have pre-requisites).
   3. Keep options open by choosing academic subjects such as English, Mathematics,
      Sciences and Languages.
   4. Find out about the university entry standards for your son/daughter’s choice of career and
      then work backwards when choosing NCEA subjects.
   5. Review their career goals each year to ensure they are enrolled in the correct subjects.
   6. Go to Individual Development Plan (IDP) meetings and engage with the school.
   7. Encourage high standards and celebrate your son/daughter’s successes.

Scholarship

Entry for Scholarship is available for students who are top academics and who seek to challenge
themselves beyond the level of NCEA Level 3. Any student who may wish to prepare for
Scholarship needs to speak to the relevant HOD.

                                                                                                   8
Vocational Pathways
Vocational pathways were introduced by the Government to help a learner see the industry links to
their learning at schools developed
Six pathways were identified:
     •          Construction and Infrastructure
     •          Manufacturing and Technology
     •          Primary Industries
     •          Service Industries
     •          Social and Community Services
     •          Creative Industries

Industry leaders from those areas then sat down and examined almost 2000 standards taught in
schools and identified the standards containing the knowledge used in their industry.

Students can log in to NZQA and see which sector/s value the standards they have gained.
Alternatively they can plan a programme and use the profile builder to see where their plan will
take them. http://youthguarantee.net.nz/vocational-pathways/profile-builder/

Parents will see that we have identified the Vocational Pathways that relate to each standard.

Students will now be able to achieve NCEA Level 2 in Vocational Pathways. To achieve the
Vocational Pathways Award, the learner must achieve: NCEA Level 2 which includes
       Literacy (10 credits) and
       Numeracy (10 credits) at Level 1 or above, and
       Achieve 60 Level 2 credits from the Recommended Assessment Standards for a
       Vocational Pathways sector e.g Primary Industries,

The pathways enable students to see how their learning and achievement will be valued in the
workplace and the types of study options and jobs opportunities available.

Achieving a vocational pathway means a learner has developed the skills and knowledge in areas
that employers’ value. It lets an Employer see a learner’s strengths, abilities and interests are
relevant to a field of work.

Although we have indicated Vocational Pathways (where available) at Level 1, 2 and 3,
please note Vocational Pathways are currently available for Level 2.

Once a vocational pathway has been identified the information provided in Occupation Outlook
http://www.dol.govt.nz/publications/lmr/occupational-outlook/
will identify the probable income fees and job prospects for that pathway.

The dials show the income, fees and job prospects for each occupation

What To Choose
  Students should be aiming to achieve up to 15-20 credits in every subject selected.

           •   Plan your course as though you are at school until the end of Year 13.

           •   Choose: the subjects you enjoy
                       the subjects you do well in
                       the subjects you need for your career areas of interest

                                  A Guide to Course Choice
  Select courses according to your ability and interest. Bear in mind it is wise to keep a broad range
                                 of courses for as long as possible.

                                                                       Mum, Dad and family:

Course Costs
The following fees applied in 2018 and may be subject to change:

National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA)
          • Entry for all NCEA Certificate courses is $76.70 per student per year.

Financial Assistance
There is considerable financial assistance available to parents/caregivers who:

           •   Receive a Work and Income or Study Link benefit

           •   Have a Community Services Card or have an income that would qualify them for a
               Community Services Card if they chose to get one.

           •   Have more than TWO children undertaking these qualifications in the same year (at
               Years 11,12 or 13)

There is a simple form to fill in to receive the financial assistance. If you think you may be eligible
to receive assistance, you should talk to Ms Brownlee before 30 August 2019. In 2018 financial
assistance changed fees from $76.70 to $20.

Paying these fees before the due date is important because otherwise late payment attracts penalty
fees, eg. in 2017 it is $50.00 so $76.70 becomes $126.70.

Course/Subject Contribution

Course/Subject contributions represent the ‘take home’ material that is used in the classroom. The
school purchases these materials (at a discount due to bulk purchasing), and this charge covers
part of the costs.

To meet these financial commitments Tamatea High School recommends parents or
caregivers establish an automatic payment of approximately $5-$10 per week. At the end of
your son/daughter’s schooling any unused payments are refunded to the parent or caregiver.

   •      no jewellery

Gateway is a programme designed for the individual. It involves time in a workplace and the study of units
associated with that workplace.

This programme is ideal for those who wish to train by apprenticeship as it gives an opportunity for a student
and an employer to see if they suit one another.

Learning programmes vary according to the industry area. For example Carpentry has 20 Level 3 credits
available while other industry areas may have fewer. While we do our best, not all industry areas can be
accommodated. For any questions please see Mrs Morgan.
