13ENGI
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Botha

Pre-requisites

This course is for students who find some elements of English more difficult but are keen to achieve and have some proven success at English /achievement standards. Students should have 12ENG or 12ESSE.


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.
