In this video one pupil describes her personal experience of witnessing an older sister going through the stress of mainstream qualifications and how she could see that by comparison studying for the SSC is a better process and is proving good for building confidence.
Norwich Steiner School is one of three Steiner Schools in the country to be offering a new Level 3 school leaving qualification. The *Steiner School Certificate (SSC), developed in New Zealand and based entirely on the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum is a three-year course of study. The SSC takes a multi-disciplinary approach with similarities in this respect to the International Baccalaureate.
To provide an insight into Norwich Steiner School & how the older pupils are experiencing this new qualification, the school is producing a series of authentic videos for release on the web. To start the series, three 16-year old pupils are interviewed about their school experience and the resultant video has been divided into a number of bite-sized clips to help guide the viewer select areas of his or her own interest without the need to sit and watch a long video.
* Steiner School Certificate (SSC) has been renamed the New Zealand Certificate of Steiner Education (NZCSE).
