NCEA Level 2 Communication English

12ENC
Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. George

Communication English

In Year 12 Students must choose either 12ENC, 12ENG or 12ENE. 

Please talk to your teacher to discuss your Year 12 English Placement.

If a student has not passed 10 Level 1 English credits for written work, they must repeat Level 1 English or choose 12ENC.  Level 1 Literacy is not sufficient to enter either 12ENG or ENE course as Literacy Credits are from all subjects and have no direct connection to the English course.

12ENC Prerequisite: At least 8 Level 1 English credits from either Unit Standards or Achievement Standards.


This course, 12ENC is for students who would like to develop their literacy skills, both written and oral, in a more practical setting. Unit Standards can be achieved at Level 2 for those students who need credits to pass Level 2, but are not looking for University Entrance. There is flexibility in this programme to co-construct a more individual course to meet a student’s needs. Student are encouraged to talk to their teacher or the HOD English about their choice to take English Communications. 

Unit Standards offered are subject to change, and further standards can be offered if appropriate for individual students.



LEVEL 2 UNIVERSITY LITERACY REQUIREMENTS
University Literacy standards are offered in many subjects and are not directly linked to the English Course. They are achieved by gaining 10 credits – 5 from reading standards and 5 from writing standards across your subjects. Some standards can count towards either reading or writing, but cannot be used more than once. In the standards below, R = Reading standards; W = Writing standards. UE Literacy opportunities must be planned for in making your subject choices.





Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

During the year we may have opportunity to see a performance, or host a visiting writer etc. There may be a charge of approx. $15.
