Recommended Prior Learning

Viking sagas to the latest literature and everything in between.
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 entirely internally assessed standards while, others may opt for one or two external assessments and fewer internal. The text possibilities are near endless.
