NCEA Level 2 Health

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. MacLachlan

Recommended Prior Learning

At least 10 credits gained at Level 1 health or with recommendation from the Head of Faculty.

This Year 12 course is a full achievement standard course which offers three internal achievement standards and one external achievement standard.  

This course caters for students who have a genuine interest in caring for their wellbeing and the wellbeing of others. The programme will allow students to examine and think critically about health issues at a personal, interpersonal and societal level. Students will be able to explore stereotypes and media images relating to health issues and develop critical thinking and social action to minimise harm to self and others.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student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