Level 3 Future Pathways

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Duncan

Students may elect to do this course for the first time in Year 13, or build on the Year 12 Future Pathways course. Students will further develop their self-awareness and learning, by exploring their skills and the opportunities around them, in order to make plans for their possible future direction. This awareness can then be used to assist in applying for tertiary education or positions of employment. 

The course will be based around the employability skills framework and the following will be covered:  Positive attitude, good communication, team-work, self-management, willingness to learn, thinking skills, resilience.  

The course may also assist students to achieve the 20 selected sector standards required to achieve a Vocational Pathways Award on their NZQA Record of Achievement.  Please see the Vocational Pathways booklet at http://youthguarantee.net.nz/start-your-journey/
