course overview.

The National Certificates of Educational Achievement (NCEA)are the main qualification for secondary school students in New Zealand. You can be confident that you can use NCEA towards future study either in New Zealand or another country. NCEA is a very flexible qualification and can be personalised according to each student's ability and interests. You may study one or more subjects at a higher level if you are very good at those subject(s).

NCEA Programme

Each year, you can choose from a wide range of over 40 subjects. If you have a particular career in mind, you can start to match subjects to suit your future career choice. Find out which subjects you will need from your school or the university, polytechnic, institute of technology or private training establishment where you intend to study.

NCEA is a national school-leaver qualification and well recognized overseas. It is well regarded by employers and used for selection by universities, both in New Zealand and other countries.

The Subjects.

Level 1 Art—1ART

Course Overview

The course is a basic introduction to wet and dry media. Students will be introduced to an art—making investigation that relies on the study of past and present art practise. Students will learn to make artworks using a study of a variety of artists as a starter. The study of current practise by well—known New Zealand and International artists will inform the students own practice. The aim is for the student to make original work that is linked to the work of the larger ar—making community.

The evidence of the art—making process will be accessed internally and the artworks themselves will be verified externally as a folio—board submission (approximately 11 artworks).

  • 90914 (V3) Use drawing methods and skills for recording information using wet and dry media.
  • 90915 (V2) Use drawing conventions to develop work in more than one field of practice.
  • 90916 (V3) Produce a body of work informed by established practice, which develops ideas, using a range of media.

Level 2 Art—2ART

Course Overview

Students will use the processes and procedures used to make Art, learnt in the previous year and apply this to their own personal investigation. The student will be given the opportunity to initiate their own artwork and choose their own subject matter (what to paint and how to paint it). The student will discuss their idea with their teacher and negotiate an approach to the student selected subject matter. The focus of the course during this year has moved from an exploration of media in Level 1 to an exploration of personal subject matter and the development of a sustained body of evidence/work, based on established practice.

The evidence of the art—making process will be accessed internally and the artworks themselves will be verified externally as a folio—board submission (approximately 12 artworks).

  • 91311 (V2) Use drawing methods to apply knowledge of conventions appropriate to painting.
  • 91316 (V2) Develop ideas in a related series of drawings appropriate to established painting practice.
  • 91321 (V2) Produce a systematic body of work that shows understanding of art making conventions and ideas within painting.
