NTCET

Study level 

WHAT IS THE NTCET?

The NTCET is the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training. It is an internationally recognised qualification that helps students develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed – whether they are headed for further education, training, an apprenticeship or into the workforce. Students who successfully complete their senior secondary education are awarded the NTCET.  Students commence their NTCET upon commencing at the College, enrolling in Stage 1 courses in their First Year. 

HOW DO STUDENTS GET THE NTCET?

Students can gain their NTCET in the equivalent of 2 years of full-time study; however, most students spread this over 3 years. There are 2 stages, Stage 1 and Stage 2. Students at CSC commence their Stage One studies, and in some cases Stage 2 courses in their First Year.

Each course successfully completed earns ‘credits’ towards the NTCET, with a minimum of 200 credits required for students to gain the certificate.

WHAT SUBJECTS CAN STUDENTS STUDY?

The South Australia Certificate of Education (SACE) curriculum is taught and assessed to gain the NTCET. A full list of subjects offered by the College can be found on the CURRICULUM PAGE.

HOW ARE SUBJECTS GRADED?

Students will receive a grade from A to E for each subject at Stage 1 and A+ to E- at Stage 2. For compulsory subjects, they will need to achieve a C- or better.

WHAT IS COMPULSORY?

The compulsory subjects are:

  • PERSONAL LEARNING PLAN - 10 credits at Stage 1
  • Literacy – 20 credits from a range of English subjects at Stage 1
  • Numeracy – 10 credits from a range of Mathematics subjects at Stage 1
  • Stage 2 subjects totalling at least 60 credits.

The remaining 100 credits can be gained through additional Stage 1 or Stage 2 subjects or SACE Board recognised courses of a student’s choice. NTCET students are required to complete 140 of the 200 credits at a C- or better.
