NCEA Level 3 Foundation Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: L. Carrick

Level 3 Foundation Studies is a continuation of the skills developed at level 1 and level 2. In particular students look at how to develop their career pathway and how to prepare for any path that they wish to take. Alongside this we continue to look at literacy skills and problem solving. A large part of this course is for students to become independent in their learning so that they can manage themselves in the future beyond school. Students are able to do this course across two columns.

Content/Skills:

  • Work collaboratively and in a team;
  • Use English language for report writing;
  • Develop career goals (work experience, personal presentation); and
  • Complete a project.

This course is not a University Entrance approved subject.
