  • Academic and vocational strands – why we do both State average – use subjects above state average Structure & organisation – pastoral care, Wednesday afternoon – flexible to cater for TAFE but also allows our more academic students to undertake extension subjects
  • Student interviews conducted to determine appropriate choices, career aspirations, students readiness for senior study Course viability depends on depend on student numbers, majority of courses run. Some smaller subjects that have insufficient numbers does not mean the student cannot study the course – outside school comes into play – eg textiles, dance… or online distance education – ancient history, software design, development. … or DET distance education for languages.
  • Pathways include; Accumulation – up to 5 years Repeating Courses – within 5 years. UAI calculated on the last attempt Recognition of Prior Learning – from OS study, TAFE Acceleration – completion of the HSC program ahead of schedule
  • Other school delivery – some students have a desire to study a subject that we cannot run due to insufficient numbers. In this case we can access a neighbouring school for delivery – eg Dance at the Senior College, Textiles and Design at Toormina. The preferred mode of delivery is face to face classroom environment. At JPC we are able to run face to face with most courses, however sometimes an alternative is required. These courses are available in this mode of delivery.
  • A typical student – attend school 85%, complete all assessment tasks to a satisfactory level = outcomes achieved
  • Subject is the general name given to an area of study. A subject can offer one or more courses. Eg English is a subject that runs Advanced, Standard, Extension 1 and 11 courses 6 Units of Science – Chemistry, Biology, Physics – yes but could not add in Earth and Environmental Science. This rule ensures a broad range of study is undertaken
  • Paul to talk about pathways
  • 2007 HSC Course Average Biology 74 Economics 76 Chemistry 75 Visual Arts 80
  • Go to p38 in your book. Each course is set out the same with Course Content What should I be able to do at the end of the course How will this course help me in the future How will I be assessed Fees Contact person
  • Show book TAFE rep at the next night – Expo with books and answer questions Go to p 73/74 and explain BDC and BEC Aged Care (BEC) 2 units, Traineeship with an employer – 2 units, Industry Based Learning – 2 units – Total 6 units towards the HSC.
