WAIUKU COLLEGE NCEA LEVEL 3 2018 - SENIOR SUBJECT INFORMATION
INTRODUCTION

This guide provides students and their parents/caregivers with information about the NCEA subjects
available at Waiuku College. It is hoped that this information will help students, and their parents/caregivers,
as they decide what subjects to take next year.

Choosing the right NCEA subjects is a very important as it can have a major influence on a student’s
educational success. Students have a lot of subjects to choose from. It is important that they think carefully
about where they want to go when they leave school before they decide which courses to take. If a student
has no idea what they want to do they should choose a broad range of subjects. Remember, it becomes
more difficult to change direction as students progress through the senior school, so think carefully, consult
widely and choose wisely.

Selecting Subjects
Take a close look at the Senior Subject Overview on the centre pages of this booklet. The overview shows all
of the subjects available at Waiuku College. Paying particular attention to which subjects lead on from Level
1 to Level 2 and Level 3.

Note those subjects that stop at a particular level, and plan how you will fill your options if you go on.

Students should follow a broad-based, general course of study for as long as possible. Early specialisation is
not recommended.

Entry to some careers and tertiary courses can be made easier by selecting appropriate NCEA courses. The
Careers Advisor can be consulted for information on these requirements.

If you want to go to university, or would like to have the option of going, make sure you choose four or five
subjects that lead on to University Entrance Approved Subjects (UEAS).

General criteria you should use in your choices are:-

       Your interests
       Your abilities
       Any career intentions you have
       Allow for flexibility in case of a change in your career plans
       Any subjects needed for higher level or tertiary studies.

To make good decisions, you need the right information. Check that you have:-

       Discussed your subject choices with your family, teachers, Dean and the Careers Advisor
       Used the Quest Database and go to www.careers.govt.nz

WAIUKU COLLEGE NCEA LEVEL 3 2018 - SENIOR SUBJECT INFORMATION
SENIOR SUBJECT GUIDELINES 2018

SENIOR QUALIFICATIONS
NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement).

Each subject is divided up into Standards. Each standard is worth a set number of credits. If students achieve
the standard (in other words they pass it) they are awarded the corresponding number of credits. In order
to achieve NCEA Level 1, 2 or 3 there is a minimum number of credits that students have to earn – see below.
They also have to achieve NCEA Literacy and Numeracy.

NCEA Literacy and Numeracy:             By achieving NCEA Literacy and Numeracy students are demonstrating
that they have reached the minimum standards required in reading, writing and arithmetic. In order to
achieve Literacy and Numeracy, students must gain a minimum of 10 Literacy credits and 10 Numeracy
credits. Lots of NCEA Level 1, 2 and 3 standards count towards Literacy and Numeracy. For example a student
achieves a standard worth 3 credits and the standard also counts towards Literacy. The 3 credits count
towards their overall total but also towards the 10 credits they need for Literacy. Each subject page gives
information about which standards contribute to Literacy and Numeracy. Gaining Literacy and Numeracy is
not the same thing as passing English and Maths.

NCEA Level 1: Students need to achieve 80 credits at Level 1 or above. They must also meet the Literacy
and Numeracy requirements.

NCEA Level 2: Students need to achieve 80 credits, 60 of which must be at Level 2 or above. The other 20
credits can be from Level 1 or above. They must also meet the Literacy and Numeracy requirements.

NCEA Level 3: Students need to achieve 80 credits, 60 of which must be at Level 3 or above. The other 20
credits can be from Level 2 or above. They must also meet the Literacy and Numeracy requirements.

Scholarship: These are optional exams targeted at the top academic students in Year 13, and there are a
range of financial awards available for the most successful students. Scholarship exams do not count
towards NCEA Level 3 nor do they lead to a qualification.

University Entrance
University Entrance, or UE, is the minimum qualification required to study at a New Zealand university. To
gain University Entrance students must:
     Achieve NCEA Level 3 – see above.
     Achieve 14 Level 3 credits in each of three University Entrance Approved Subjects (UEAS), e.g. 14
        credits in English + 14 credits in Geography + 14 credits in Chemistry.
     Achieve UE Literacy by gaining 5 reading and 5 writing credits at Level 2 or above. UE Literacy credits
        are earned by gaining specific Achievement Standards at Level 2 or 3 across a range of subjects.
     Achieve Numeracy by gaining 10 numeracy credits at Level 1 or above – see NCEA Numeracy above.
Many university courses have additional requirements, for example they may specify which Level 3 subjects
students should have taken. Students should research the exact requirements of any courses they are
interested in applying for. Auckland University prefers students to have a minimum of 17 Level 2 or 3 English
credits, in addition to the minimum UE Literacy requirements.
WAIUKU COLLEGE NCEA LEVEL 3 2018 - SENIOR SUBJECT INFORMATION
SENIOR COURSE STRUCTURE
Year 11 students MUST take English, Maths and a science subject, plus three options. (The science subjects
are Science, Science Advanced, Primary Industries Trade Academy and Geography. Students can take
Science as their ‘science subject’ and Geography as one of their options). Students in Year 11 have 24 lessons
per week.

Year 12 students MUST take English or Te Reo Maori and five options. They should retain a broad choice of
subjects. Students should take Maths if it is required as a foundation for tertiary study or they have not yet
gained Level 1 Numeracy (10 credits) or UE Numeracy (10 Maths credits at Level 1 or above). Students in
Year 12 have 24 lessons per week.

Year 13 students are strongly advised to study English, or a subject with a major English language component
(eg. History, Media Studies, Art History or Health) especially if intending to go to University. Students must
take a total of 5 options which make up a coherent overall course related to proposed tertiary study, or
employment. Students may take a sixth subject at the discretion of the Year 13 Dean. Students in Year 13
have 20 lessons and four study periods per week.

SPECIAL ASSESSMENT CONDITIONS
Some students are entitled to Special Assessment Conditions (SAC) such as a reader/writer or extra time
when they are completing internal assessments and exams. Students can qualify for SAC for a variety of
reasons, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and visual or hearing impairment. If students have had additional
support in the junior school they may qualify for SAC when doing NCEA. Contact Ms Joyce, the schools Special
Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), for more information.

GETTING OPTIONS ADVICE
The Form Teacher should be the first source of help. The subject teachers, Heads of Department and Deans
will be glad to assist in any way they can. Students can also speak with the school’s Careers Advisor, Miss
Wilson.

DEANS:                Year 10        - Miss Potts
                      Year 11        - Mrs Hughes

VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS
                             BRIDGING THE GAP FROM LEARNING TO EARNING

As well to counting towards NCEA, many Level 2 credits also count towards one or more of the Vocational Pathways. Vocational
Pathways are a new award that highlight a student’s learning, achievement and skills in relation to a particular industry. There are
six Vocational Pathways:
        Manufacturing and Technology
        Construction and Infrastructure
        Creative Industries
        Primary Industries
        Service Industries
        Social and Community Services
HOW TO USE THE VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS INFORMATION
I Don’t Know What I want to do When I Leave School
         If you don’t know what you want to do when you leave school you can use the Vocational Pathways information to get
         an idea of which industries or sectors the course you choose may be useful for.
I Know What I want to do When I Leave School
         If you know what you want to do when you leave school you can use the Vocational Pathways information to help you
         choose courses that will help you follow your desired career path.
VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS AWARDS
If you pass NCEA Level 2 and you have earned 60 Level 2 credits from the recommended list of standards for a particular pathway,
including 20 from the list of sector-related standards, you will be awarded that Vocational Pathway on your Record of
Achievement. For example you could receive the Primary Industries Vocational Pathway award or the Creative Industries
Vocational Pathway award. This will tell employers and trainers that you already have a good foundation to start training in their
particular industry.
LEVEL 1 STANDARDS AND VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS
Although Level 1 credits do not count towards any of the Vocational Pathways Awards, there is a list of recommended standards.
These standards are considered to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to get you started on your way towards achieving
a particular Level 2 Vocational Pathway award.

PATHWAY OPPORTUNITIES IN
                                     THE SENIOR SCHOOL

When students reach Year 12 a range of new opportunities are presented that enable them to plan their
pathway through the senior school and on to tertiary study or employment.

GATEWAY PROGRAMME
A structured work experience programme called “Gateway” operates for Year 12 and Year 13 students.
Students need to be “work-ready” and have the necessary attitudes. Students complete a work placement
with an employer one day a week for around ten weeks, while they continue to study at school.

Key Points:

 Provides workplace learning related to the student’s career goals;
 A formal partnership is made between the school, employer and learner prior to starting the work
  placement;
 The workplace learning is assessed and learners are able to gain Unit Standard NCEA credits;
 An individual learning plan is developed for each student detailing the qualifications and learning to be
  achieved in the workplace;
 Assessment usually occurs in the workplace;
 Students develop a relationship with a local enterprise, as well as links with Industry Training
  Organisations.

Students often benefit from the Gateway Programme by becoming more motivated and self-confident.
Students have reported that the workplace learning is easier because it is ‘real’.
In recent years we have had Gateway placements in businesses including: Animal Care, Building, Engineering,
Hairdressing, Equine, Agriculture, Sport and Recreation, Early Childhood Education, Automotive,
Horticulture, Construction, Tourism, Midwifery, Plumbing and Electrical.

In 2018 we will have placements available for 32 students in Year 12 and 13. Students will need to fill out a
Gateway Application Pack, complete relevant sections on the school’s career tool and successfully complete
an interview.

Please contact the Gateway Coordinator in the Careers Centre to apply. Applications close at the end of
Week 4 Term 1, 2018. Interviews will take place in Week 5 Term 1.

S.T.A.R. COURSES
Senior students can study part of a Unit Standards based Polytechnic course while still at school. Success in
one of these will give easier access to a full time course at polytechnic in the future. The courses would suit
students who find it difficult to find a stimulating full time programme at school. S.T.A.R. Courses are
outlined on the ‘S.T.A.R. Courses’ pages of this booklet. New courses may become available during the year.
These will be advertised via the Student Notices. Further details can be obtained by contacting the Careers
Centre.

If you want to book a place on any of the S.T.A.R. courses you need to do so before the end of this year
(2017).
