Senior Pathways and NCEA Qualifications

Programmes of learning for Years 11, 12 and 13 are based on the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) Levels 1, 2 and 3. Courses are structured to encourage students to develop a flexible pathways approach to their learning while keeping their options open for the future. Students can also learn at multiple levels of NCEA.

To help parents and employers better understand NCEA, an app is available for mobile devices – phones and tablets. Called the ‘NCEA Guide’, the app provides quick and easy access to key information about NCEA.

Full details of the subjects and the prerequisites are outlined in the Senior Subject Information Guides which are given to all students to help with subject selection. The Careers Co-ordinator and Academic Dean provide advice and guidance in subject selection at each year level. Parents are encouraged to be part of this process.
