Graphics Level 2

Graphics Level 2 (Full Year) (L2GRAPF)

Prior Learning: L1GRAPF
Future Pathways/Subjects: L3GRAPF
This course is designed for students who want to develop their creativity, learn about the practice of designing, make qualitative judgements – informed decisions on aesthetic and functional aspects of design – and develop a range of visual communication and 3D computer modelling skills. This is done through the context of architecture and spatial design. It covers developing design ideas, which involve initiating, exploring and refining design ideas, informed by research, leading to the communication of an outcome in response to a spatial design brief.  A Windows laptop is necessary.

Vocational Pathways

rosette-fullThe NZ Qualifications authority has identified six categories of jobs.  The aim is to improve the relevance of learning for students by indicating how their learning and achievement is valued by broad sectors of the workforce. Vocational Pathways enables employers to assess whether potential employees’ skills align with their industry requirements more easily. This will be a real advantage when they look for work and training opportunities in the sector.

Students now have access to their personalised Vocational Profile on the NZQA website and it is important to students use this as a tool to plan their subjects at Level 1. It shows the progress to achieving a formal Vocational Pathways Award.
