Technology Requirements:
A laptop is essential for this course
Entry Recommendations:

Due to the risks involved in the course a high standard of personal responsibility is required. Students will also require suitable outdoor clothing to ensure their safety when participating in activities.

There is a limited number of places in this course due to health and safety requirements. Only one class is planned for. If the course is oversubscribed, the following will happen to finalise class numbers:

  1. Firstly, the student’s course priority will be used to finalise the class numbers.
  2. Second, students who have completed OED 203 will be given priority over those that have not taken OED in the past
  3. Finally, if this does not result in a class size of 18, a course selection morning session will be run 9a.m. Monday 5th December at school to confirm the 2023 class list.
Course Outline:

This course is likely to include Unit Standards in sea kayaking, rock climbing or survival skills/tramping and mountain expedition skills.

Students will attend trips and overnight camps that result in absences from other subjects. Attending these trips and overnight camps are a required part of assessment to gain credits during this course. Students are expected to catch up on all missed work.

Where Does It Lead:

The course can be valuable in occupations where self-confidence, commitment and good communication skills are needed and can lead into the adventure tourism Industry and to tertiary courses in outdoor pursuits.
