Technology offers a range of subjects. Our focus is on providing students with challenging projects and outcomes which they have had an input into shaping. The students are taught appropriate technological skills and processes which are then applied to the projects.
In Year 7 and 8 Technology is a compulsory part of the College curriculum. Students are timetabled for 3 hours per cycle with specialist teachers in specialist rooms. From 2018 each class or pod will rotate through four areas of Technology, these being Food, Fabric, Resistant Materials and Digital Technology.
At Year 9 and 10 there are currently six learning areas offered. They are Wood, Metal, Design and Communication, or DVC, (previously known as Graphics), Food, Digital Technology, and Fabric. Year 9 students complete a semester course and Year 10 students a full year course in their chosen subject area. Students can and often do select more than one Technology subject.
Senior students (Years 11 to 13) can continue in all six areas. Qualifications can be gained in Hospitality, Engineering and Carpentry Unit Standards through to Level 2 NCEA, and in Fabric, DVC and Digital Technologies Achievement Standards through to Level 3 NCEA.
Technology is recognised as a University Entrance Subject. Opportunities also present themselves to those students where the practical nature of the subjects leads to apprenticeships and other career pathways.
