NCEA Level 3 Design

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Lindsay

Students need to learn to solve clearly defined design problems. Solutions need to be communicated through drawings, notes, models and finished work. Students will develop knowledge and understanding of existing design practices, and apply this to their own ideas.
Students will produce work, presented in a portfolio and assignments on a number of themes. The course is assessed through achievement standards that cover the curriculum with total credits of 22.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
