Grade (10)

This first year prepares students for entry into their respective clusters and specialisations. The currently offered clusters and specialisations are(Engineering, Aviation and Business)

All grade 10 students are exposed to “taster” courses for each cluster so that at the end of this year they are in a position to make an informed choice when deciding which of the vocational pathways they will follow. As well as the “taster” courses, students follow a progressive programme in each of the core subjects of applied English, Arabic & Islamic Studies, Applied Mathematics, Science, ICT and programmes covering Citizenship & Life Skills for males and Health & Life Skills for females. All students, irrespective of age and ability must enter and successfully complete the first year of the programme.

Grade (11)

In their second year, students commence more detailed studies in the cluster that they have chosen. Students who elect to follow the Business cluster will take introductory subjects in the two specialisations of mechanical and electrical engineering. Those who follow the business cluster will take introductory subjects in accounting and finance, supply chain management, facilities management, office administration as well as an introduction to human resource management. From 2012/13 students who follow the Aviation cluster will commence their studies in aircraft maintenance. All students complete 2 weeks of work placement in grade 11.

In addition, all students will continue their studies in English, Arabic & Islamic Studies, Applied Mathematics, Science, ICT and Citizenship & Life Skills or Health & Life Skills.

Grade (12)

In their third and final year students continue their studies in their chosen specialisation. Those following the engineering cluster will have chosen either mechanical or electrical engineering while those in the business cluster will take subjects in one of the accounting and finance, supply chain management or facilities management (males) or office administration (females) specialisations. Students in the aviation cluster will continue their studies in aircraft maintenance. All students complete a further two weeks of work placement in this final year.

As is the case for grade 11, students in grade 12 will continue their studies in English, Arabic & Islamic Studies, Applied Mathematics, Science, ICT and Citizenship & Life Skills or Health & Life Skills.
