Level 2 Metal Technology and Engineering
This course is an engineering-based, industry standards course, and is designed to be delivered in school workshops using pre-moderated teaching and learning materials and requires practical projects from students.
The projects provide students with the opportunity to learn a range of practical engineering skills and techniques. Each of the engineering projects encompasses the tools, material requirements; competency, and knowledge outcomes listed in the qualification unit standards and provides a practical and stimulating experience for students.

The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
