What will I learn and how will I learn?

- how to research a chosen career based topic and evaluate the success of their research.
- how to document their research findings in a written format.
- how to write both a general and targeted resumé.
- how to conduct themselves in a formal interview.
- how to write a business correspondence.
- how to work and communicate effectively in a group situation
- how to communicate effectively and conduct an informal meeting

Conditions of Assessment
NCEA internal assessments allow a flexible approach to the collection of achievement evidence. Therefore, assessment conditions will vary from in class tasks, under teacher supervision, to ongoing assessment work completed at home. All assessments will be monitored by the subject teacher to ensure authenticity of student work. Specific assessment conditions will be provided for individual achievement standards. NB: This course does not give University Entrance credits.

Submitting Internal Assessment
All internal assessments in this course are delivered at the pace of individual students and are to be completed at any time during the school year.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in their work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available.  Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.

PLEASE NOTE: Courses are subject to change with the review of standards at the end of each year.
