12OED

Level 2 Outdoor Education

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Beagley

This course is designed for students in Years 12 and 13 who are motivated and genuinely interested in the outdoors, and have an interest in perhaps pursuing a career in this industry. A total of approximately 28 credits at Level 2 and 3 will be offered from a variety of industry based Unit Standards that will contribute towards NCEA Level 2 and 3. Students will also gain the Outdoor First Aid Certificate.

The course is run over five periods each week with one afternoon having two periods blocked together, and other periods either side of lunch times where possible, to allow sufficient time for practical work as required. Some classes will run beyond normal class time.

Topics Covered:

Bush craft and Survival, River Crossing, Tramping, Rock Climbing, Outdoor First Aid, Navigation, Kayaking, Sailing, Mountain Biking, Adventure based learning, Skiing, Outdoor Leadership (Year 10 Camp) and Camping


Course Costs

This course uses some outside instructors and venues, regularly requires students being transported to sites in and around Dunedin and utilizes equipment that must be maintained and regularly upgraded for the safety of students. In addition, part of the tramping unit standard involves a 3-day tramp in term 4.  As such there will be costs to be met if activities are to proceed. Student contributions of around $380.00 for the year make the course viable. Students will receive a term outline each term and a breakdown of the costs of that term. This, it is hoped, will spread course contributions across the year and we would ask contributions to be made by the indicated dates so that activities can be organized or modified accordingly. On occasions some activities will be supported by STAR funding.
