NCEA Level 3 English
Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Harrison
To deal with the demands of an increasingly complex world, 13ENC prepares students by focusing on the skill of thinking critically. Contemporary texts, including film and written texts, form the basis of the course. Students will respond critically to the texts, while making links to the wider world and contemporary society. They will develop their ability to express ideas in a variety of written and spoken forms.
(Note : English is strongly recommended for all Year 13 students who intend going on to university study. Level 3 English can be most useful in fulfilling certain course requirements. Those students intending to study any of the Health Sciences, in particular, are encouraged to examine the possible benefits of studying English at Year 13 level. Students intending to apply for Australian universities need to check their entry requirements carefully because some are demanding L3 English.)
