12 MAGnet Automotive

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss N. Absolum

The 12MAGnet Automotive 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 Automotive Industry and want to either move into an apprenticeship or further tertiary study.

Students attend Unitec each Wednesday from 8.30am till 3pm each Wednesday. 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 24 credits which will count towards Level 2 NCEA.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Students must have a pair of steel capped boots, safety glasses and coveralls.
