L2GAT

Gateway Level 2 and Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Cowie


Gateway is a structured work placement programme, where students work off site one day a week with an employer in a desired career field.

Students who are placed in such an environment will have the opportunity to do work-based unit standards, which go towards NCEA and towards an industry qualification. For this reason it is suggested that students who apply for this course only if they intend to apply for an apprenticeship and/or going to study at a polytechnic. Students should not select this course if they are planning on degree level study at university when they leave school. 

This option requires the student to be highly motivated and prepared to make up on class time missed when on work placement, in their own time.

In 2023, this class will not be timetabled. It will occur 'outside' the timetable and your courses/apprenticeship work will likely occur all day on Wednesday. Do not choose Gateway unless you have a work placement programme in mind. 


Recommended Prior Learning

15 credits in both Maths and English Achievement Standards at Level 1.


Acceptance on to the Gateway Programme through a written application, teacher recommendation and an interview.
