NCEA Level 3 Health
Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. MacLachlan
This UE approved Level 3 course builds on key health concepts developed across Level 1 and Level 2 Health, it is a full achievement standard course offering three internal achievement standards and one external achievement standard.
This course will develop an understanding of the factors which influence the health of individuals, groups and society. Topics covered include teenage pregnancy, cancer, depression, euthanasia and fertility. We study the consequences for personal, interpersonal and societal well-being related to these issues and the strategies needed to bring about health-enhancing change. A high level of independent research is necessary and the course will encourage students to develop empathy and other skills related to the health and social service sector.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student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.
