Update to NCEA changes 2022

Tēnā Koutou e te whānau,

 In response to the ongoing disruption to learning due to Covid,  NZQA and the Ministry of Education announced some changes to NCEA and University Entrance.

The full details of the changes can be found here:  https://www.nzqa.govt.nz/ncea/understanding-ncea/changes-to-ncea-and-ue-for-2022

 A brief summary

  • Learning Recognition Credits (LRCs) will be automatically added to a student’s credit total at a rate of 1 per 5 Credits gained up to a maximum of 10 Credits at L1 and up to 8 Credits at L2 and L3
  • Certificate Endorsement will drop from 50 to 46 Credits at all levels
  • The L3 component of University Entrance will now be 2 X 14 Credits plus 1 X 12 Credits rather than the usual 3 X 14 Credits (this is still in addition to gaining a L3 Certificate and meeting the numeracy and literacy requirements).  See here for more details on UE requirements.

 Thank you for your ongoing support as we move through Term 3 with more certainty.

Noho ora mai | All the best

Seizing Future Opportunities

The vision we have for our SEHC ākonga is one who will be innovative, connected, compassionate and engaged. They will seize the opportunities offered to them by new knowledge, skills and technologies to secure a sustainable social, cultural, economic and environmental future for Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Values & Ethical Decisions

Through their learning experiences, ākonga will be able to express their own values and aspirations, and explore with empathy, the values of others. They will critically analyse these values to be able to make ethical decisions about how and why their contribution to society is important, while maintaining their cultural connections to whānau, whenua and wairua.
