Recommended Prior Learning

14 credits from 1ENG would be recommended for entry to this course.

This course is designed for students wishing to develop a sophisticated range of written, visual, oral communication and personal response skills, and the analytical, independent thinking required for both tertiary study and life beyond. Student choice and voice are vital elements of this course’s important point of difference: the opportunity for students to create their own programme of 18 credits from the internally and externally assessed Achievement Standard credits offered. Being able to select the standards best suited to their individual interests, strengths and needs means it is possible for some students to choose internally assessed standards, while others may opt for one or two external assessments and fewer internal.
