Onslow College

At Onslow College, through a whole school careers programme and individual guidance, we support our young people to successfully transition out of school. We  develop career management skills they need to navigate lifelong decisions.  We have a team of three staff members to work with our students from Year 9 to Year 13 in finding the right pathway.

Vocational Programmes

The Wellington Trades Academy is a fees-free, dual enrolment programme.  Year 12 students are enrolled at school and Polytech e.g. Weltec School of Hospitality, Whitireia Porirua or Te Auaha campus for the year.  Courses offer unit standard credits with the focus on practical-learning in a specific vocational strand that aims to prepare students for tertiary study, an apprenticeship or employment.

The application process sits alongside our subject selection at the end of Year 11 and places are limited.  The process is administered by Onslow College and the selection process managed by Wellington Trades Academy.
