TRANSITION PLANNING 32F - Full Year

TRP32F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Stewart

TRP32F(S)  has an underlying focus on employability skills and is targeted at enabling students to prepare for either further study or employment. This course is intended to be flexible to meet the needs of students of all abilities. Students begin by setting individual targets based on both pathway and NCEA requirements. Students set these targets after they complete a personality test and plan out their own TRP32 course structure, whether they take the course for a full year or just a semester. Students will learn to manage themselves as they prepare to transition into the workforce or further training.

Students will develop a career pathway plan and then practice their communication skills as they have interviews with staff, other students and/or community members.

In this course most students will have a minimum of 3 standards on which they are assessed: 

-Planning a career pathway

-Interviewing in informal situations

- Communicate with people from other cultures

Students will self-identify a need for further standards and  will be able to obtain these from the list below at school and/or from the external opportunities mentioned in the following paragraph. 

In addition to NCEA standards within school, and as part of their own targets, students are encouraged and facilitated to take part in additional learning opportunities, including but not limited to: barista training, holiday STAR courses, first aid courses, learner's driver licensing, experience Ara events, CV writing and job applications. Many of these opportunities also provide significant additional NCEA credits.

Visits from and to Tertiary providers and local businesses will be organised to match student interests and needs.
