This 13MAGnet Sports and Outdoor Recreation course is run in partnership with Adventureworks (9 Geddes Terrace, Avondale, Auckland, New Zealand), 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 Adventureworks, studying industry-relevant standards which offer credits toward NCEA Level 3.

This course would suit students who are looking to enter sporting, fitness careers or the outdoor education industry. If you love to stay fit and healthy and would like a practical course that will introduce you to a range of different outdoor and physical careers this course is for you.

Students attend the course each Friday 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 Friday. 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.

This Course will offer approximately 25 credits which will count towards Level 3 NCEA. This is subject to change and will be confirmed at the start of next year.
