NCEA L2 English - Communication Focus

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. McLeod

English - Communication Focus 

The world relies on communication

This course provides students with a contextualized project-based course for the purpose of achieving NCEA Level 2. This course is tailored for those students who are about to embark on apprenticeships or entering into the work force and require practical correspondence skills: writing formal letters, work place reports, engaging in group tasks and gaining confidence in interviews. 

This course does not provide University Entrance Literacy.

Course Overview

Term 1
In the first term, the focus is on working together as a group in a school based context on a project-based task. The purpose of this project will be to use real world examples such as a Year 12 common room or modernisation of the canteen. This term will also focus on the business correspondence standard with the students completing one memorandum and a formal letter to the school focused on the project for this term.

Term 2
We continue our project and business correspondence work plus add a close viewing standard that uses critical thinking and analytical skills.

Term 3
Term three is all about oral communication and being confident in workplace discussions and meetings.

Term 4
This term we make sure all the 'i's' are dotted and the 't's' are crossed.

Recommended Prior Learning

Open entry but this course is best suited to students who are looking for work-ready communication skills.
