Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Natalie Absolum.


There are no Prerequisites for this course.

However, there are limited places available each year and students maybe subject to Deans/DP approval. 

There is also further acknowledgement of commitment that is required by both parents and the student taking this course. An email will be sent to students that select this course and both student and parents are required to make a commitment to the course and attendance. This must be made before a place can be confirmed on this course.

This 13MAGnet course is run in partnership with Adventure works (9 Geddes Terrace, Avondale, Auckland, New Zealand), and offers students the opportunity to complete relevant standards in association with the NZ Police. Students spend one day a week at Adventureworks, gaining experience in Uniformed Services while working towards NCEA Level 3 credits.

This course would suit students who are looking to enter the Police or Defence force. Students will need to apply via an Interview process that will happen later in the year. 

Students attend the course one day a week from 9.00am 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 their course day. They will be provided with tutorials during the school week to help with this. Students and whānau will need to show a commitment to attendance in this course. Please register your interest in this subject by selecting it.

Students will complete approximately 22 Level 3+ credits and 7 Level 2 credits. This is subject to change and will be confirmed at the start of next year.
