The aim of this training scheme is to develop learners’ English language skills at a level at which they can communicate effectively and appropriately in real life situations relevant to a New Zealand high school context. The course also prepares students to be confident and accurate users in all four areas of English language. Self-correction should be almost a natural reflex and they should be able to keep up and contribute equally to a conversation with three or more native speakers. They should be able to manage the same type of reading material as senior secondary school students and publications and websites in English will not present any problems for them. At the end of the course they will have acquired the skills required to: • Have an English language proficiency level equivalent to CEFR Mid B2. • Enrol in NZCEL L4 (General), (Employment) or (Academic). • Enrol in a NZ high school in year 11, 12 or 13. Note: Kiwidotcom has pathway arrangements with selected top-quality high schools in New Zealand. Graduates will be able to enrol in these schools directly. Content: Reading and writing skills will focus on discussion, comprehension and evaluation of texts at an academic level relevant to a New Zealand high school context. The reading will include discursive, explanatory, instructive and/or persuasive texts. The writing will concentrate on the presentation of predominately grammatically correct and clearly communicated ideas. An understanding of how to infer meaning from monologues and dialogues. The knowledge and understanding of extending spoken answers with further information and examples and to show a degree of spontaneity in discussions. Entry Requirements: • Minimum 14 years or older • Possess the appropriate student visa and medical insurance • Demonstrated English proficiency for entry to a certificate at level 3 using one of the evidence types listed in Rule 18 of the NZQF Programme Approval and Accreditation Rules 2018 • Passed Kiwidotcom English (Intermediate) (Training Scheme) (Level 3) or • Passed Kiwidotcom placement test.
