NCEA Level 2 Te Reo Māori
Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Goldsworthy
This is a literacy approved course.
The Level 2 Te Reo Māori course is designed to advance the student in the areas studied at NCEA Level 1. It comprises written Māori, spoken Māori and Māori culture. The course will be assessed by means of the following assessments: reading, writing, listening, speaking (and creative writing optional). The learning of more advanced gramma and vocabulary will ensure that the student has the necessary knowledge to attempt, with confidence, the NCEA Level 3 Māori examination in the following year. Additional credits may be available for some students, due to the school policy of 18-22 credits are to be studied per subject.
Language training teaches problem solving skills that are in demand. Language-trained people can be found heading research units in Treasury, Tourism, Trade and Commerce, in various sections of Internal and Foreign Affairs, in all fields of the media, in teaching, commerce, medicine and law. Experience of Taha Māori can enhance the likelihood of employment in a government department. Māori language adds to the versatility of a job seeker.
