International English for Tertiary Entrance

IETE
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Cox

This is a multi-level class for senior students from Year 11 to Year 13 who are using English as a second language at an intermediate plus level (CEFR B1, B2 and above)). It is 4 hours a week.

Students will focus on gaining NCEA credits at L3 (EL & EAP), gaining L1 English literacy with unit standards and ensuring that they have the appropriate qualifications to move onto Level 3 or tertiary.  Support will be offered for IELTS towards the end of the year.

Students will further develop their ability to personally respond to a wide range of text types, including film. They will do research and present a speech and develop their conversational skills across a wide range of topics. They will continue to develop their use of academic vocabulary and grammar skills throughout the year.  Students will have access to digital devices and digital tools to improve their digital literacy and they will work collaboratively for some tasks.

Students could gain up to 25 internally assessed unit standard credits at L3 (EL & EAP). Some students may be offered L4 EAP unit standard assessments; this is dependent on ability.


Required Prior Learning

This course is for senior students who are using English as a second language, who need support to get L2 and L3 NCEA credits; who might need IELTS and those who are looking to access tertiary courses.
