Students undertake two electives each semester:
- Elective 1 is timetabled through the week
- Elective 2 runs all day Thursday
A number of these electives provide Stage 1 credits.
Achieving the NTCET
There are two stages of the NTCET:
Stage 1, which most students do in Year 11, apart from the Personal Learning Plan subject, which most students do in Year 10 Stage 2, which most students do in Year 12.
Each subject or course successfully completed earns ‘credits’ towards the NTCET , with a minimum of 200 credits required for students to gain the certificate.
Students will receive a final grade from A to E for each Stage 1 subject and A+ to E- for Stage 2 subjects. For compulsory requirements, to gain their NTCET they will need to achieve:
a C grade or better at Stage 1
a C- grade or better at Stage 2.
The compulsory requirements are:
Personal Learning Plan (10 credits at Stage 1)
Literacy – at least 20 credits from a range of English subjects or courses (Stage 1 or Stage 2)
Numeracy – at least 10 credits from a range of mathematics subjects or courses (Stage 1 or Stage 2)
Other Stage 2 subjects totalling at least 60 credits.
The remaining 90 credits can be gained through additional Stage 1 or Stage 2 subjects or Board-recognised courses (such as VET or community learning) of a student’s choice.
