A Starting Point
Before making any subject choices, it is important to think about what you enjoy doing at school and
what your strengths are. Try answering these questions

What subjects am I good at?

What subjects do I enjoy?

What subjects do others say I am good at?

What job/career/pathway am I interested in?

                       KEY REMINDERS for choosing your subjects:
            •   Keep your selection broad – your ideas may change over time
            •   Check the recommended and compulsory subjects that you may
                need for further study at school or at tertiary Level
            •   Speak to your parents, teachers, dean and any other person that
                can provide you with information or ideas

In addition to these subjects’ employers tell us that there are certain skills and competencies that they are
looking for in their future workforce.
    • Thinking/Problem solving
    • Communication
    • Manages Self (time management/presentation)
    • Relates to others
    • Participates and contributes (is actively involved in situations)
    • Technologically aware
    • and above all shows a positive attitude and a sense of pride in self.
Part of our Senior School Programme at William Colenso College is to build these skills and competencies so that
you are a strong applicant for a course or apprenticeship and a career.

You can then try to match those factors to a particular career pathway. There are plenty of people at school who
can help you with this
   • Your subject teachers
   • Your Form Teacher
   • Your Dean

Other useful resources or people are
   • Your Parents and Caregivers
   • Career Services website www.careers.govt.nz

Once you have a possible pathway you then need to select your subjects so that you can travel down your chosen
pathway. For some pathways there are some subjects that you are required to do and some that are
recommended.

    •   REQUIRED– these subjects provide necessary building blocks of knowledge and skills. You must have
        these subjects in order to gain entry into specific courses either at school or at tertiary Level.
           a) Study at school – many subjects have PREREQUISITES at each year Level, check summaries
           b) Study at tertiary Level – check the requirements
               Entering on job training /apprenticeships – e.g.. ETCO electrical apprenticeships, see below

    •   RECOMMENDED – These subjects provide a strong background of knowledge and skills needed for
        further study and training. Subjects recommended for tertiary study and job training are listed in the
        following tables.
