The aim of the course is to help students gain either/and/or Level 3 English language standards ; level 1 literacy, UE literacy  standards .

How will this course be assessed?
This course will utilise the flexibility of NZQA assessment to provide differentiated pathways for students
Pathway 1 using only EL standards students could gain 30 credits
Pathway 2 Using a combination of EL standards and US Literacy standards students could gain at least 21 credits
Pathway 3 Using only UE litreacy standards students could gain 10 credits in UE reading and writing
Will there be any FAO?  (Further Assessment Opportunities)
