Welcome to the SPEC website

Our aim is to ensure students become motivated and re-engaged in their learning, and help them become independent learners equipped for life after school.  The SPEC programmes are written to provide a framework that encourages a self-directed approach to learning, with a focus on developing the key competencies. The programmes are NZQA approved for two New Zealand qualifications below, that have a focus on developing competencies.

The ethos and principles of our programmes directly link to the New Zealand curriculum’s vision for Directions for Learning;  “Young people who will be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners”.
