Course Selection for the Senior School 2019
There are important steps to take when planning your course for next year. Before you can
choose your subjects you must complete a career plan using the Vocational Pathways. You
must then choose subjects which closely support your chosen Vocational (Career) Pathway.

There are two steps to completing a career plan:
   1. Complete your profile on ‘Vocational Pathways’.
      http://www.youthguarantee.net.nz/vocational-pathways/
      This computer programme will help you see which subjects are important for your future
      career choice.

   2. Research your selected job/career on CareersNZ. (www.careers.govt.nz). This site
      gives you a great deal of information about any job you may be interested in. Very
      importantly, the job information will show your Vocational Pathway and recommend the
      subjects you must take at school.

By the end of this process you will know
    The subjects you need to study to support your career plan
    The qualifications you need to support your career plan
    How long you will need to stay at school to achieve your qualifications

Students who (for whatever reason) do not develop a career profile will have to take a general
set of subjects that keep as many career options open as possible. This will include English,
Mathematics and Science and three other subjects chosen for you.

Choosing your Course – Follow these Steps!

General Information for Choosing your Course
Year 11 – Students study six subjects.
English and Mathematics are compulsory and can be taken at different levels
Science is strongly recommended.
Your teachers in these subjects will discuss which Level 1 course is best for you.

Your career plan will probably suggest 1-3 other subjects which you must take.
Then you have personal choice to complete your subject selection, including one spare
subject. Keep your course as wide and general as possible at this level.

Year 12 – Students study six subjects
English at an appropriate level is compulsory.
Mathematics is strongly recommended, especially if you did not get at least 14 credits at
Level 1.
Your Vocational Pathway career plan will probably suggest 1-3 other subjects which you
must take.
You have free choice to complete your subject selection, including one spare subject.
    Most subjects will have a pre-requisite for Level 2 entry – check it out.
    Keep an eye on what subjects you can take through to Level 3 & UE next year.

Year 13 – Students study five or six subjects
There are no compulsory subjects, but your subject selection will be firmly fixed on your
Vocational Pathway career plan and the qualifications you need to get there.

Entrance to University and Poly Tech Degree Courses
To gain entry to a University (and Poly Tech degree courses) you must get

University Entrance You will need:
   NCEA Level 3 (60 credits at Level 3. These can be Achievement or Unit Standards)
      Gain at least 14 credits in THREE approved Level 3 Subjects (i.e. have Ach Stds)
  Literacy - 10 credits at Level 2 or above , made up of:
      5 credits in reading
      5 credits in writing
  Numeracy - 10 credits at Level 1 or above, made up of:
      achievement standards – specified achievement standards available through a range of
        subjects, or
      unit standards - package of three numeracy unit standards (26623, 26626,
        26627- all three required).
Once you have met the requirements for University Entrance it will appear on your Record of
Achievement.

THIS IS THE MINIMUM LEVEL. Universities have set higher requirements for some courses
based on points gained and the number of Merits and Excellences you gain. See your dean
or Mrs Toohey for details.

Students aiming for a degree course at university or polytech must aim for Merit and
Excellence endorsement in NCEA.
Senior Courses 2019 - Plan your Vocational Pathway - Plan with the End in Mind - Hornby High School
Prerequisites
You usually have to gain a certain number of credits at level 1 before you can
study a subject at level 2. This is called a prerequisite. Normally you must gain
12-15 credits before you can go to the next level. Sometimes you must gain a
particular standard to progress to the next level. Check the subject information
page for prerequisite details.

Multi-Level Studies
It is important to study the subjects you need at a level that is right for you. It is
possible (and often very sensible) to study a level 1 subject in year 12 or 13.
Many students in years 12 & 13 study subjects at different levels.

National Certificates
You can gain a National Certificate Level 2 in some subjects in year 12 & 13.
These are two year vocational courses which are studied as well as NCEA and
can be very useful when applying for polytech courses.

Scholarship
Scholarships are gained in individual subjects. Able Year 13 students will be
encouraged to do the extra work required to achieve this award. Your teacher will
discuss this with you. Success in Scholarship does not contribute any credits to
Level 3 NCEA.

Vocational Pathways
Vocational Pathways is a government programme to ensure school students
study the correct subjects which will lead to the job or career path they want. Most
jobs/professions are listed in the VP job profiles. Students can also discover their
Vocational Pathway by looking at their results on the NZQA website. Once
students have selected their job/career and Vocational Pathway then selecting
the correct subjects to get them there becomes easy.

                  In this booklet you will see which subjects
                  support the various Vocational Pathways.
                            Make your subject courses carefully
                               according to your Vocational
                            Pathway. This process is set out on
                           the option choice form. Your dean or
                                    Mrs Climo will help.

Some Basic NCEA Facts

 To gain NCEA Level 1 a student must gain at least 80 credits. Ten of
  these credits must be in Literacy and ten must be in Numeracy. Literacy
  & Numeracy can be gained in many standards in various subjects. The
  average Level 1 course has up to 120 credits available.

 NCEA Levels 2 & 3 require 60 credits at or above the level as well as 20
  credits from a lower level. You must also have at least L1 Lit & Num

 Credits are gained by meeting national standards. These standards are set
  out as either Achievement Standards or Unit Standards. Each standard
  has a number of credits attached.

 In many subjects achievement standards and unit standards are combined.
  Students and teachers have a very wide choice of what standards to study.

 Most courses offer between 18-24 credits during the year.

 Standards can be assessed internally (marked by your teacher) or
  externally (e.g. exam at the end of the year)

 Students achieve standards at the level of ‘Achieved’, ‘Merit’ or
  ‘Excellence’. You get the same number of credits regardless of the level
  achieved.

 Students who get at least 50 credits at ‘Merit’ or ‘Excellence’ level will have
  their NCEA Certificate endorsed showing this achievement

 Subject endorsement can be gained if you get at least 14 credits at Merit or
  Excellence, gaining at least 3 credits externally.

 NZQA will check (moderate) samples of marked student work to ensure
  national standards are met for internal assessment. This means that
  standards between schools are similar.

 NCEA entry fees are currently $76.70. Financial assistance can lower this fee
  to $20.00.

 Some students can qualify for extra assistance such as extra time or
  reader/writer assistance during the exams. Ask your dean for details.

Descriptions

Arts - Visual
 Paint, Design, Photography, Printmaking

 HOD: Whāea Rowena Clemence

Visual Arts in levels 1, 2 and 3 is of a high academic standard:
Level 3 is UE and can be used as a pathway into University or as
a reason for attending Art and Design Schools. Levels 1 and 2
are strong academic and vocational courses, which can be individually tailored to each
student’s needs and strengths. Studying Art is an essential aspect of understanding society.

How is this subject assessed:
Art students create a completed body of work based on their own ideas and passions. We start
with spending time in term one generating a strong concept (what your work is about) and tailor
the course to suit the student’s interests. A degree of self-management is important in this, as
we expect students to lead the learning with guidance from the teacher. Students at all three
levels will need to produce an independent folio of work for external assessment and exhibition
along with a digital blog/workbook to attain credits in these courses.

How does this subject fit into the senior school pathway?

Level one: Visual Arts is a generic practical Art course. It is a base level intended to set students up to
successfully attain NCEA level 2 in a specific field. Because there are students who are already very
keen on a specific field before they get to level one, the structure and design of our course allows
students to specialise based on their own interests a little earlier than other school settings.

Engineering Trades
 National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering L2

 HOD: Mr F Rzoska / Teacher Mr I Rees

 Subject Description
 Engineering is a practical subject where students complete a
 series of industry approved projects. These projects provide
 students with an opportunity to learn a wide range of practical
 engineering skills and techniques. Each engineering project
 encompasses the tools, material requirements, and competency
 and knowledge outcomes listed in the unit standards, and
 provides a practical and stimulating experience for students.
 Students may also be offered additional tuition at SIT or ARA.

 A Range of Typical Jobs and Careers that this subject supports.
 This course provides a set of foundation skills for mechanical engineering and related trades.
 They may be used towards the first stages of an apprenticeship or as the basis for a pre-trade course. It is
 particularly relevant for people wishing to pursue careers in general engineering, machining, toolmaking,
 fitting, engineering maintenance, fabrication, and marine engineering.
 As the Level 2 qualification represents a common foundation for the industry, all unit standards are
 compulsory.
 These unit standards lead to trade qualifications in mechanical engineering at levels 4 and 5 on the NQF,
 and ultimately to the National Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) (Level 6).
 Our community continues to see growth in the engineering sector. Genuine opportunities exist and needs
 learners to keep up with rapidly developing technologies. New entrants to the sector need to build the
 underpinning knowledge and specific skills required to meet the needs of modern engineering industries.
 This is an exciting and evolving sector that will continue to grow.

Why Study Media Studies?
The media is everywhere. They feed us fact and fantasy, ideas and information, sign and symbol,
truth and lies. Their influence is profound, and, ideally, painless. Media Studies is the systematic
examination of both the traditional media (such as radio, newspapers and television) and the newer
media (such as the Internet and electronic games). As a discipline it seeks to develop an informed
and critical understanding of the ways in which the media influence social, political and economic
areas of life, as well as the way they shape our perceptions, attitudes, desires and behaviour.

S.P.E.C. (Specific Preparation for Employment and Citizenship)

HOD: Mrs V Sanford

  This is an alternative NZQA programme that allows students to work on special interest
  modules leading to a nationally recognised qualification. The programme is not an NCEA
  course but can complement many NCEA areas and also allows students to gain Supported
  Learning Level 1 credits towards NCEA in the form of specific Unit Standards. The
  programme offered in 2019 is the New Zealand Certificate in Skills for Living and offers a
  pathway forward to Employment or Vocational Training/Apprenticeships or the New Zealand
  Certificate in Foundation Skills Level 1. There is an optional “work strand” component to this
  qualification. The Ready for Work course provides a framework to prepare young people for
  work.

This programme is aimed at Level 1 and 2 students who have not yet achieved L1 NCEA.

  Pre-requisites:
  There are no pre-requisites to gain entry into this course, however, students must be able to work
  independently, set learning goals and complete tasks to an acceptable standard. This course is
  designed to be a student driven programme, with the student making choices about what topics
  they want to study. All Unit Standards are internally assessed but student folios are externally
  moderated. It is envisaged that this qualification would be achieved over an 18 month - two year
  period for most students. Students must complete 11 modules (booklets) with a minimum of 10
  tasks from each one.
Trade Academies
  HOD: Mrs B Climo
  In consultation with Year Level Dean

 Trade Academies are partnerships between tertiary
 providers and local secondary schools and no cost is
 incurred by the students. These are funded by the
 Ministry of Education. Students have access to the
 latest workshops, equipment and professional trades
 tutors one or two days per week. The remaining three
 or four days are at school. As part of the Trade Academy
 you may be required to complete work placement.

At the conclusion of the year students will have
achieved:
Level 2:
50-70 credits: Trade Academy
20 credits:    School based subjects

How could it work:

It is envisaged that students who move on to this programme would then
ultimately move to full time Youth Guarantee training at the beginning of the next
academic year.
