Status and Qualifications
SPEC is an NZQA Approved Course Owner (Feb 2008)
NZQA Certificate Qualifications
SPEC courses are being delivered in a range of settings. High schools are using the courses to deliver all three of the NZQA approved certificate qualifications. Students who require more support with their learning embark upon the Certificate in Learning Support Level 1 while students who have become disengaged with their learning, or who need an alternative pathway to achieve NCEA Level 1 will embark upon the Certificate in Mainstream Studies Level 1.
The Certificate in Mainstream Studies Level 2 provides a progression pathway for those students wishing to stay on at school and continue with their SPEC work. However some schools are using the Level 2 certificate for the higher ability students who may move on to tertiary or further study.
A range of Alternative Education centres and Regional health schools are also using the SPEC courses and are experiencing positive outcomes with students successfully transitioning back into the mainstream school.
The SPEC supported learning courses are being delivered in nearly every special school throughout New Zealand. Many schools are using these courses as a framework for their whole curriculum as the TRUMP course follows the NZ curriculum and and is written against Level 1 of the curriculum document. With all the courses having a specific focus on developing the Key Competencies and the certificates providing the formal accreditation, the SPEC courses provide a relevant and purposeful course to enhance student’s learning.
The SPEC Headway and Ready for Work courses are also being delivered in a number of centres who provide ongoing support for young people who have identified needs beyond school.
