SPEC - Specific Preparation for Employment and Citizenship
The SPEC courses are designed to meet the needs of individuals, by offering a wide range of workbooks that lead to three NZQA Approved Certificate Qualifications.
SPEC courses practise a ‘self directed’ approach to learning with the student taking part in all aspects of the course, from choosing tasks they would like to complete, planning those tasks in negotiation with the teacher/other support person, conducting a practical application of the task, generating authentic evidence towards a portfolio, and reviewing what they have learnt and how they have demonstrated the Key Competencies, which is a key focus of all of the SPEC courses.
The course provides an alternative pathway for students who are struggling to reach their full potential. The credible certificate outcomes achieved provide an excellent source of evidence to support a job application or further tertiary study.
In addition the Supported Learning Certificate Qualification provides a credible outcome for students who will not achieve NCEA Level 1.
SPEC Ethos and Principles:
The Kiwi Course and Kiwi Interest Modules are aimed at top Primary/Intermediate aged students.
The Supported Learning courses, TRUMP, Headway and Ready for Work are written for students who display a range of multiple and/or complex learning needs.
The Mainstream Courses, the Shooting Star, ONE Star, TWO Star and THREE Star, along with the Mainstream Interest Modules are aimed at secondary aged students, and are mainly used in the mainstream setting.
