Future Pathways/Subjects:
This course is designed to meet the language learning needs of students who are working at NCEA Level 2 of the Learning Languages area of the New Zealand Curriculum. The course uses a variety of resources which enables teachers to customise the course to meet individual learning needs. The aim of the course is to further students’ language skills so that they are more confident and skilled in expressing and justifying their own ideas and opinions, and supporting or challenging those of others. They are able to use and identify linguistic and cultural forms that guide interpretation and enable them to respond critically to texts and the ideas contained in literature. Topics have been chosen to aid this development. This Year 12 course is organised into FOUR modules based on the language ideas and activities suggested in the Spanish Curriculum Guide: hhtp://

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.
