The National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering Technology is an introductory qualification that has been developed for secondary school students interested in mechanical engineering or wishing to pursue careers in maintenance and general engineering, marine and fabrication engineering or machining and tool-making.

The qualification is made up of three level 1 unit standards intended to provide students with a well
balanced, practical course that combines the following basic skills and knowledge:

The three core units total 24 credits towards the final qualification.  16 additional credits from NCEA or other elective unit standards can be used to complete the 40 credits required for the National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Credits available:   24 Unit Standard

Course details may be subject to change.

This course is for students who are at risk of not gaining numeracy through the standard Mathematics Course. Some students will be approached and recommended to take this course based on their previous results.

This course does provide a pathway to Level 2 Mathematics but only with HOD approval. There is no pathway to Level 3 Mathematics.

HOD Approval required for entry. Limited places available

Japanese language and culture play a key role in developing students’ personal, group, national, and human identities.
Japanese students are better able to understand and produce more complex Japanese and a variety of text types. The students can communicate beyond the immediate context, for example, past and future events.  Students have the opportunity to:

  • communicate information, ideas and opinions through different text types
  • express and respond to personal ideas and opinions
  • communicate appropriately in different situations
  • understand ways in which Japanese is organised for different purposes
  • understand ways in which Japanese culture is organised for different purposes.

It is essential that Japanese is taken at Years 9 and 10 prior to undertaking the Level 1 course. Exceptions to this are made for suitably qualified students with approval from the HOD. A school trip to Japan will be organized every two years if there are sufficient numbers of students. This trip enables students to experience the wonders of Japan and use their language in an authentic context.
