What's helping to improve the number of students leaving school with L3 NCEA Qualifications:

  • strong leadership in schools and passionate teachers
  • good mentoring , pathway programmes and pastoral care
  • trades training available at MIT for 16/17 year olds
  • alternative options of education
  • digital tutoring
  • access to after school educational resources and spaces

What's not helping to improve the number of students leaving school with L3 NCEA Qualifications:

  • parents working two jobs
  • leaving school early to contribute to wages in the home
  • distraction by family commitments
  • vocational pathways are skewed
  • data skewed as a proportion of students are not being externally assessed (a high portion of these are in the low decile area)
  • poverty - cost for extra curricula education
  • poor housing
  • poor nutrition
  • gang influences
  • Parent's own low educational achievement level
  • low self esteem from all parties (parents/children)
  • lack of expectation - why is education important...apathy
  • not enough 'strong' role models (as to why education is important)
  • lack of options of employment after school - with more physical/practical jobs which require limited or no education
