NCEA Level 1 English Foundation

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: M. Evers

This course is primarily focused on developing the reading, writing, information literacy and verbal skills necessary to function effectively in the workforce, as a participating member of the community beyond school and/or in the pursuit of vocational study. Students complete the unit standards required for Level 1 literacy as well as a variety of achievement and unit standards which are all internally assessed. This is a somewhat flexible programme which caters for individual needs and strengths. Students in 11ENF also typically take Foundation Studies. 

The goals for this course are to gain literacy at Level 1 and gain at least 14 credits towards achieving Level 1 NCEA.  The Standards available are similar to those in the 11ENV programme.

Field trips: To be confirmed.
