Te tirohanga whakamua tēnei pukapuka mātauranga mā ngā ākonga, ngā mātua hoki o Te Kura Tuarua o Kaitāia. This on-line curriculum handbook is intended to provide students and parents with a comprehensive view of the Kaitāia College curriculum.
INTRODUCTION : He Whakataki
Kaitāia College offers a diverse range of subjects that prepare students for a range of National Qualifications including National Certificate of Educational Achievement [NCEA] Levels 1, 2, and 3, and a variety of tertiary qualifications. It is important that students make good choices with regard to course selection. This resource provides vital information to enable them to do this, as it contains pre-requisites to courses and outlines of where they might lead.
It is wise to seek advice from specialist staff. Mrs Sally Lockie, the Careers Advisor, leads a team including Manukura and Guidance Counsellors who are able to help with course planning. Specific information about a course is best obtained from the relevant Head of Learning Area or the Teacher in Charge of the subject.
Over the last few years there have been considerable changes to NCEA and consequently to the courses offered at Kaitāia College. For any course, if there are too few students, it may not proceed. Courses may also be modified in the new year to meet the needs of students who enrol then. This online handbook is our ‘best endeavour’ to predict 2021.
Universities and other tertiary institutions are constantly changing their entry requirements; for the institutions as a whole and for specific courses. As a school, we try to keep students up to date with information but the university’s own websites are the best source of information, and students and whānau should be accessing these.
Please, students and whānau, study this resource together. We encourage participation and input of parents and caregivers in their student’s future choices.
E akiaki ana mātou e ngā mātua, ngā kaitautoko hoki kia whāia ngā pae tawhiti kia tata mā o rātou tamariki.
