What is the Pod?
The Pod is a future focused learning environment that reflects current educational research. The Pod class provides flexibility for Year 11 and 12 learners at Whangaparaoa College to personalise their learning by choosing what they would like to learn about. Each learner in the Pod works with teachers, including an assigned mentor teacher, to identify possible project ideas, plan their individualised programmes, and work towards their NCEA qualification by completing NCEA standards related to their projects.
