4 The Curriculum in Years 11 & 12 In Years 11 and 12 students have a choice of courses in the following three pathways: The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) Vocational Education and Training (VET) in the SACE The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) Please refer to the Years 11 and 12 Curriculum Handbook, available on the College website, for more detailed information about the subjects offered in each pathway. In addition to the subjects selected for study, all students in Years 11 & 12 study a Christian Studies course. In Year 11, the subject is called Religion Studies and in Year 12, Faith Issues. Concordia College offers a wide range of subjects but sometimes students wish to study subjects which are not available at Concordia. In those circumstances, it may be possible to arrange for instruction in one or more subjects through the Open Access College or the School of Languages. Please note that a subject will only run in a particular calendar year if there is a viable class size. Subjects not running in 2016 are indicated by asterisks in the summary tables. The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) In the SACE a semester of study in a subject is worth 10 credits and to meet the requirements for the completion of the SACE, students must earn a minimum of 200 credits. At Year 11 level, Concordia students select four subjects for study, in addition to English and Mathematics. At Year 12 level, students select four or five subjects plus the Research Project. Vocational Education and Training in the SACE (VET) Vocational Education and Training (VET) means studying courses that are usually undertaken outside Concordia College at TAFE (Tertiary and Further Education) Institutes or RTOs (Registered Training Organisations). Students are able to count their VET studies for up to 180 SACE credits. The courses can be either semester or full year in length, and could involve a day per week attending another educational provider and/or on-the-job training (work placement). VET study at school may lead directly into traineeships and apprenticeships.

6 The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) The IB Diploma is a balanced liberal arts and science curriculum framework designed to thoroughly prepare students for university education and beyond. The IB Diploma Programme, with its three subjects at Higher Level and three at Standard Level, requires all students to engage in the study of Languages, Sciences, Mathematics, and Humanities. In addition, the three core components of Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Action and Service (CAS), and the extended essay (EE), provide students with additional skills for future study and life balance. Choosing an IB Diploma Programme The two year course comprises of six subjects chosen from groups 1-6 as indicated in the table below and the completion of the core of the programme. At the core of the Diploma Programme are: Theory of Knowledge (TOK) (1 or 2 modules a week) An Extended Essay (EE) related to curriculum content (approximately 4,000 words) Participation in Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5 Group 6 Language A - studies in language & literature A : literature Language Acquisition B : several years of study only ab initio: new learner Individual and Societies Experimental Sciences Mathematics The Arts English A: literature HL/SL Self-taught language A: literature SL only French ab initio SL only German B SL only English B HL/SL History HL/SL Psychology HL/SL Economics HL/SL Biology HL/SL Chemistry HL/SL Physics HL/SL Mathematical Studies SL only Mathematics HL/SL Music HL/SL Visual Arts HL/SL or another subject from groups 1-4 or another language from group 1 There is also the possibility of studying other subjects online or language courses offsite. For subjects available online, please see the end of the IB subject listings. Assessment The IB grading scale (1 7) is used for each subject. Theory of Knowledge and the extended essay are assessed A-E, contributing up to three points towards the Diploma points total. The total score is therefore out of 45. All subjects are externally examined or moderated. All subjects incorporate an internal assessment component, which is externally moderated to ensure that uniform standards are maintained.

7 Other Relevant Information The Pastoral Care Program A relevant Pastoral Care Program is delivered at each year level. In this program students undertake a range of units of study appropriate to the year level. The units of study include Study Skills, Goal Setting, Drug and Alcohol Education, Friendships, Bullying & Harassment and Career Education. In the Senior School, there are individual mentoring programs in place to assist students select their academic pathways and post school directions. As part of this program, Year 10 students complete a Personal Learning Plan (PLP). There are Peer Support and Mentor Programs to help Years 7 and 8 students make the transition to a secondary school environment. Christian Studies At Concordia College, all students in Years 7 to 12 study a Christian Studies subject. The Christian Studies Curriculum Framework, from Lutheran Education Australia, has been used as a basis for the curriculum. In Year 11 Religion Studies and again in Year 12 Faith Issues, students earn 10 SACE credits. All students attend Chapel three mornings a week. It is also an expectation that the Christian ethos of the school is reflected in the design and delivery of all courses and subjects. Learning Support The Learning Support Program provides support services for all students in the College, regularly for some students and for others as required. Literacy and numeracy support programs are in place and extension classes and activities are provided for gifted students. Community and Service There is a strong emphasis on Community and Service activities at all year levels, for example, cross age tutoring, the 40 Hour Famine and other fundraising for charities. Students are encouraged to use their initiative and implement their own community and service projects and activities. There are also opportunities for service to others through two international programs, the Kalahari Experience and Habitat for Humanity. Student Leadership Student leadership is strongly encouraged at Concordia and leadership opportunities are offered at each year level. Students from each year level may participate in Forum (Student Representative Council) or become a School or House Captain in Year 12.
