Year 11 JC Pathway

Course Description

Our JC pathway is an exciting opportunity for students to undertake a slightly different pathway to achieve both NCEA Level 1 & 2. This is achieved through a programme that is more personalised to learner needs.


This is an invitation only course and should only be selected by students who have been formally invited to the course. Students who undertake this course will be leaving the college at the end of Year 12 to undertake further tertiary training (trades/skills), an apprenticeship or enter the workforce.

This option cuts across 2 option choices (See below) in addition to compulsory RE and PE & Health. Students then have free choice for 1 further option. It has to be taken in conunction with 11ENGJ and 11MATJ.

Core Skills
This course provides students with the opportunity to learn valuable life and vocational skills that will benefit them in the ‘world of work’. As well as compulsory NCEA level one unit standard assessments, students will also have the opportunity to complete assessments related to different life skills, as well as their career interest areas. Students that are invited to join the two-year JC programme have been identified as those most likely to benefit from this vocational alternative to mainstream NCEA pathways.

Horticulture
This course introduces students to basic horticultural skills and the primary industry sector in NZ. Major topics include: Soil science – soil type varieties and their effect on soil properties; Plant Husbandry – plant cultivation and propagation, protection and training, maintenance of plant health; and Amenity horticulture – landscape plans and design.
