Year 13 English Internal (13ENGI)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Botha

This course offers only internal achievement standards and cannot lead to subject endorsement. These classes focus on equipping students with the necessary critical response skills to achieve at Level 3 so that students are able to pursue their chosen pathways after graduation from Howick College.  The course components will be finalised in line with the students' needs and, as such, it is possible that some Level 2 standards may also be offered. The course will include the option of Level 2 reading and writing standards for students still needing UE literacy credits.
