Gateway Level 2

L2GAT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. McKenty


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 intend applying 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.

During class time, unit standard theory, appropriate to industry qualifications and/or Polytechnic qualifications, will be completed.
