Junior Certificate for Learning Progression Information

WHAT IS THE JCLP?

A certificate awarded to Junior students in both Year 9 and 10.

THE JCLP CERTIFICATE IS DESIGNED TO;

  • Monitor students to ensure they are on track for the demands of the following year.
  • Provide an incentive for FVHS Juniors students to strive to continue to lift achievement levels by gaining M or E.
  • Provide the opportunity for our Junior students to monitor their progress towards achieving their learning targets in individual subjects throughout the year.
  • Strengthen the ‘Achievement Culture’ and reinforce our school values.

HOW IS STUDENTS’ LEARNING PROGRESS MEASURED IN JCLP?

  • Each junior course is divided into a certain number of units of work, skills or strands (usually between 3 and 6)
  • All assessments must be completed. If assessments are missed, the curriculum leader will use other evidence to determine the achievement level.
In year 9 students will be assessed as Merit if;
they achieve at the upper end of Curriculum Level 4 i.e. moving towards 5

In year 9 students will be assessed as Excellence if;
they achieve at Curriculum Level 5 or above.

In year 10 Students will be assessed as Merit if;
they achieve at Curriculum Level 5.

In year 10 students will be assessed with Excellence if
they achieve at the upper end of Curriculum Level 5 i.e. moving towards Curriculum Level 6*

PLEASE NOTE:
NCEA Level 1 in Year 11 is aimed mainly at Curriculum Level 6.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF CERTIFICATES?

  3. JCLP with Excellence
Students will have their JCLP awarded with Merit if over 70% of their units are achieved with Merit.
Students will have their JCLP awarded with Excellence if over 70% of their units are achieved with Excellence.

WHEN IS THE JCLP CERTIFICATE AWARDED?
