AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING VOCATIONAL PATHWAY - YEAR 12
PLANNED LEVEL 2 CREDITS: 23
This course enables students to have Manufacturing and Technology awarded as their vocational pathway on their Record of Achievement and gain credits towards a National Certificate in Motor Industry (Automotive Engineering)
Students will spend one day a week involved in sector-related training.
This will involve a mixture of:
• Attending UNITEC (20 credits available)
• Students will attend UNITEC for 20 days over 20 weeks
• Attending on-site work experience for 10 to 13 days (subject to progress in school based subjects)
• Special Courses run at School such as;
Site Safe – required for students to enter manufacturing sites.
Driving Courses – To aid students getting driver's licence
In addition to the Unitec component of this course students will study five school-based subjects. Where possible school-based subjects will be taught in an engineering context.
Students will automatically be placed in the following courses:
ENGLISH VOCATIONAL PATHWAY - YEAR 12
PLANNED LEVEL 2 CREDITS: 16
English at Level 2 aims to strengthen skills in in a range of written, oral and visual contexts. English will also help you to achieve University Entrance Literacy this year, and will support your growth as a writer across the curriculum. While this is an internally assessed course, it is still considered to be an academic course. You will be required to read and appreciate literature and language. As well, you will develop analytical skills and be required to interpret text.
MATHEMATICS VOCATIONAL PATHWAY – YEAR 12
PLANNED LEVEL 2 CREDITS: 16
Mathematics will be necessary for virtually any career, particularly one in commerce or science. It will also extend anyone with an enquiring and logical mind and will examine a number of problem solving techniques.
SCIENCE VOCATIONAL PATHWAY – YEAR 12
PLANNED LEVEL 2 CREDITS: 14
In this course students investigate a wide range of topics that cover all of the Science disciplines outlined in the National Curriculum. The course is an academic course aimed at students who wish to continue studying Science, but who do not wish to specialise in any one branch of Science such as Biology, Chemistry or Physics. Learning activities include both research investigations and practical experimental work. This course leads on to Level 3 Science and ultimately tertiary courses.
A total of 89 credits are on offer in this Building & Construction Vocational Pathway.
Students will select one other course of your choice.
