NCEA Level 1 Communication English

11ENC
Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. George

Communication English

In Year 11 students must take either 11ENC, 11ENL or 11ENG. You must talk with your Year 10 teacher before requesting one of these classes. Your teacher, together with the HOD English, will direct you towards the best course of study for your Year 11 year. Your placement will be affirmed and communicated to you once Year 10 results have been reviewed by the dept.

11ENC - The Communication English Level 1 course is designed specifically to give extra support with literacy to students who need it, and to cater for those who would value a more individualised programme of study that is engaging, practical and has less literature study.
The focus of this course is on developing literacy skills, gaining Level 1 Literacy Standards and the use of practical English skills to support other subject areas and vocational avenues. This is a Unit Standards course although Achievement Standards will be chosen in response to a student’s strengths and needs once the Unit Standards (including Literacy Standards) are completed. This course most likely leads to 12ENC which is a Unit Standards course at Level 2 and is for students not looking to go to University.

Unit Standards gain credits for Level 1 NCEA, but do not qualify for endorsement as there is no grading of Merit or Excellence.
