Make a fully informed decision
Plan a broad pathway!
Making choices about what subjects to take is very important. Having a good understanding of the content and demands of a subject you are considering taking will help you make an informed decision. It is also important you plan out a course pathway for the following years.
Tools to assist you in making informed decisions:
- Pathway planning sheets
- Attend the annual subject expo
The Subejct Expo is an opportunity for Year 10, 11 and 12 students to find our more about the subjects they are considering taking in 2017. Students will receive and information sheet with the programme for the expo (also below) from their form teacher and they are expected to make the most of the opportunity.
Programme for each year level:
- Discuss with teachers, careers staff and parents
- Study the curriculum handbooks
Youth Guarantee initiatives are about improving the transition from school to work, by providing a wider range of learning opportunities, making better use of the education network, and creating clear pathways from school to work and study.
The Vocational Pathways provide new ways to achieve NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3 and develop pathways that progress to further study, training and employment. Achieving NCEA Level 2 is the foundation for success in further education and the world of work. Level 3 builds upon this through shared opportunities across school, tertiary, and industry training. The Vocational Pathways provide a framework for students to show how their learning and achievement is valued in the workplace by aligning learning to the skills needed for industry.
