Overview

At Horowhenua College the aim is for students to develop a broad technological literacy that will equip them to participate in society as informed citizens and give them access to technology related careers. We provide all of our students with the chance to explore technology across a range of disciplines and year levels.

Courses on offer

The wide range of NCEA courses offered at senior level by the faculty, create career path opportunities for students. In the present NZ economic climate, where the country has a growing deficit of well qualified trades and industry personnel, it is important that students take advantage of what our college has on offer in the Technology Faculty.
