NCEA Information

The National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is the main qualification for all senior secondary students.  In Years 11, 12 and 13, students study towards obtaining sufficient credits to gain NCEA at Level 1, 2 and 3. In each of the subjects at senior level, there is a mix of internal and external assessments, involving achievement standards and / or unit standards.

Other qualifications offered may include:

  • National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering Technology (Level 1)
  • National Certificate of Tourism (Introductory Skills) (Level 2)
  • National Certificate of Retail (Level 2 and Level 3)
