NCEA level 2 toolbox

Theory of action

If we have an understanding (based on data) of how our students are tracking towards achieving NCEA level 2, and where our school can make a difference, we can quickly identify the support available and how to access it. 

This will help us make weekly progress towards supporting our students into quality further education, employment, or training.
