Why Casuarina Senior College?
In 2018, Casuarina Senior College introduced a 3-year program for the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET), we call it NTCET@CSC.
Through NTCET@CSC students start their NTCET in First Year, giving them a head start on Second Year and Third Year. NTCET@CSC: Prepare, Progress & Accelerate in Stage 1 and Stage 2 courses will provide the flexibility to tailor the senior years to each student’s individual needs and aspirations – whether they wish to focus on preparing, progressing or accelerating their learning. We believe NTCET@CSC inspires students who may previously have been disengaged in their 10th year of schooling, as well as enabling academically high achieving students to accelerate their senior schooling journey.
The initiative is a bold and innovative one, with broad approval from stakeholders such as the Education Minister, the Department of Education, the NT Board of Studies and the school community including staff, parents and students. Complementing NTCET@CSC are a suite of other measures: later start times, earlier finishing times on Mondays and Fridays, longer lessons and more training for teachers. The move is in line with our values of Respect, Trust, Responsibility, Honesty and High Expectations.
