 P a g e | 3 Senior College Course Booklet for 2013
                                                                   INTRODUCTION
This guide provides students and their parents/caregivers with information about the subjects
available at the senior level of Tuakau College. It is hoped this information will assist students and
their parents/caregivers as they seek to make the right decisions about next year’s course of
study.

The selection of subjects to be studied at Years 11, 12 and 13 has become a very important
decision in a student’s education. Students are now given a wide choice and this has a major
effect in terms of their future direction both in education and in a career. It becomes more difficult
to change direction as you progress further into the senior school and tertiary institutions so think
carefully, consult widely and choose wisely.

CHOOSING SUBJECTS
Study the charts which detail the subjects available at Tuakau College, paying particular attention
to the way in which subjects lead to others at a higher level.
Note carefully those subjects that stop at a particular level, and plan how you will fill your options if
you go on.
Students should seek to follow a broad-based, general course of study for as long as possible.
Early specialisation is not recommended.
Entry to some careers and some tertiary courses can be made easier by selecting appropriate
secondary courses. The Careers Counsellor can be consulted for information on these
requirements.
If you have a well-planned career choice which requires a level 3 qualification, start with the
subjects you will need at that level and work backwards to level 2 then level 1.

Your course will work best for you if you consider the following when
choosing:
            Will my subjects help me in my future learning and career?
            Am I interested in the subject?
            Is there continuity with the subjects at the Year 12 and 13 levels?
            Do I meet the entry requirements for the course?
            Will I meet the literacy and numeracy requirements for NCEA Level 1 or for University
             Entrance?
            Will I have a good chance of success?

To make good decisions you need the right information. Check that you have discussed your
subject choices with your family, teachers, Whanau Dean and the Careers Counsellor.




                        The school reserves the right to cancel or to change a course

PLANNING YOUR PROGRAMME

            The NZ Curriculum requires students to study a broad balanced curriculum based
             on the Key Competencies and Values. The Key Competencies of , thinking; using
             language, symbols and texts; managing self; relating to others, and participating
             and contributing.

            This booklet is designed to help you make a careful choice of subjects in the senior
             school. These choices are very important for your future and it is vital that you
             choose the right course direction as the further you go in the senior college, the
             more difficult it becomes to change that direction.

            Students seek tertiary qualifications for a range of reasons: to learn technical skills;
             to gain training and enhance entry in specific areas; to broaden employment
             opportunities; to provide entry to particular professional areas.

            Study the diagram showing the Learning Pathways on page 16. Note particularly
             those which carry through and those which stop at Year 11 or 12. Read the
             descriptions in the booklet for those subjects that will suit your course.

            Check the careers information on pages 18 - 20. If you have made a clear career
             choice that requires Year 13 qualifications, start with the subjects you need at that
             level and work backwards.

            If you are uncertain about your career, keep your options open by keeping your
             subject choice as broadly based as possible. English, Maths and Science are
             necessary in so many careers. These subjects provide the foundation for
             communication and numeracy skills. Try to include them in your courses for as
             long as possible.

            Some subjects have direct career links, especially those such as workshop
             technology (hard materials-wood/metal), graphics and art. If you are considering
             leaving school after Level 1, you may find transition into work easier if you include
             such subjects.

            Check on career opportunities and subject requirements; talk to your teachers,
             Heads of Departments and Teachers in Charge of subject areas (See contents
             page), your Dean, the Careers Advisor, Mrs Lapwood and the Careers Team. Look
             through the careers information in the Careers room, and the Kiwi Careers website
             http://www.kiwicareers.govt.nz/

            Choose your subjects using the guidelines and the timeline in this book.

                            senses, and feelings to create works and respond to the works of others.


                            In Health and Physical Education, students learn about their own well-being, and that of others and
                            society, in health-related and movement contexts.

                            learn to express these relationships in ways that help them to make sense of the world around them.


                            In Science, students explore how both the natural physical world and science itself work so that they
                            can participate as critical, informed, and responsible citizens in a society in which science plays a
                            significant role.


                            In the Social Sciences, students explore how societies work and how they themselves can
                            participate and take action as critical, informed, and responsible citizens.


                            In Technology, students learn to be innovative developers of products and systems and discerning
                            consumers who will make a difference in the world.

TE REO MĀORI Level 3: (13TER)
This course builds on language skills covered in Level 2.
    Students can use language variably and effectively to express and justify their own ideas
       and opinions and support or challenge those of others.
    They are able to use and identify the linguistic and cultural forms that guide interpretation
       and enable them to respond critically to texts.
    Students will engage in sustained interaction and produce extended text. They will analyse
       ways in which the target culture is organized for different purposes and for different
       audiences.
    They will also analyse how the use of the target language expresses cultural meanings and
       covers the four essential areas of language learning; Listening, Speaking, Reading and
       Writing.

Themes are based around the world outside your immediate experience and may
include Kōrero o nehera, Treaty of Waitangi, Ngā Moteatea, Te Ao Hurihuri, Ngā Whakapono and
Mahi-a- ringa

         You are able to gain literacy credits required for university entrance in this course.

Achievement Standards (Technical Drawing)

You will be set an architecturally based design brief to produce a full design portfolio and an
architectural scaled model to present your solution. This will involve researching your design brief
and producing a range of concepts evaluated against the specification. You will then develop the
chosen concept through to a final solution and produce the instrumental technical drawings to
scale to communicate the solution. Following this, you will make a scaled architectural model and
evaluate your solution for external marking.
Level 2 Design and Visual communication requires thorough written analysis, evaluation and
justification throughout the portfolio.
