Pod Courses

The Pod is a future focused learning environment that reflects current educational research. The Pod class provides flexibility for Year 11 learners at Whangaparāoa College to personalise their learning by choosing what they would like to learn about. Each learner in the Pod works with teachers, including an assigned mentor teacher, to identify possible project ideas, plan their individualised programmes, and work towards their NCEA qualification by completing NCEA standards related to their projects.

The Pod course runs for 12 hours per week.
