Course Selection

For Enrolment Click Here

Course selection is one of the most important decisions you can make because it can have a bearing on the future pathways you may wish to follow. We would encourage you to take time to consider all of the options available to you and design a programme that reflects you, your strengths, and your interests.

We would also encourage you to choose a programme that will keep a range of pathways open to you.

There are a lot of people here to help so make sure you talk your choices through with your whānau and your Tutor Teacher!

How do I choose my courses?

Choosing subjects can be a challenge! See here for more information on how to choose your subjects. Consider courses that reflect your interests, aspirations and strengths, allow you to continue with possible subject choices in subsequent years, keep career pathways open to you and support you to gain entry to tertiary study or the pathways you want to explore.

We would encourage you to research early any information about any requirements for careers.  Many careers require you to have studied particular subjects, e.g. Physics and Mathematics for engineering. You can make an appointment with the Careers Advisor (Mrs Greenstreet) to help you with this.
