Additional Study Opportunity
If you know you are going to need a few more credits in NCEA to go onto further study, training or employment in 2023 there is an opportunity for them to complete some additional standards over the summer break. Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura) the Correspondence School is now accepting short term enrolments from students who want to use the summer break to earn additional credits or specific internal standards in NCEA. Te Kura offers a range of internal standards at NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3, including English, Maths, Science and more. Courses are delivered online so, with access to a computer and the internet, students can study anywhere and anytime. Te Kura’s qualified teachers will be available online to answer any questions and assess students’ work. More information about summer school and which courses and standards are available can be found, here.
