Level 3 Gateway
Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Williamson
The Gateway Programme offers Years 12 and 13 students structured workplace learning across many industries and businesses in our local communities.
What is taught in courses varies from year to year. This course could include:
Students complete the core units in the first term and then start their work placement. Gateway students spend approximately 10 days at a work placement during the year and have individual learning programmes, which allow them to gain new skills and knowledge relevant to their chosen career.
Students are assessed in the workplace for unit standards that contribute to the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA), as well as industry-specific qualifications.
Recommended Prior Learning
If interested, please see Mrs Williamson, in the Senior Study Room in Tawera for an application form. An interview will also be required.
Total Credits Available: 38 credits.
Internally Assessed Credits: 38 credits.
Please note that courses will go ahead only if student numbers, staffing, and timetabling allow it. Where a subject is oversubscribed, and there are insufficient numbers or resources to create an extra class, a ballot system may be applied.
The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
