12 MAGnet Building and Construction
Teacher in Charge: Miss N. Absolum
The 12MAGnet Building and Construction course is run in partnership with Unitec (Mt Albert Campus), and offers students the opportunity to take their first step on a vocational pathway while still at school. Students spend one day a week at Unitec, studying industry relevant standards which offer credits toward NCEA Level 2. This course is designed for students who are passionate about the Building Industry and want to either move into an apprenticeship or further tertiary study.
Students attend Unitec each Wednesday from 8.30am till 3pm. Attendance is taken twice a day and sent back to MAGS. Students will need to be willing to catch up on work from other lessons that they miss on the Wednesday.
This course will offer approximately 28 unit standard credits which count towards Level 2 NCEA.
