Gateway is a structured work-based learning programme for Yr 12 and 13 students funded through the Tertiary Education Commission. Gateway offers first-hand work experience to senior students keen to explore a career option, with the aim of supporting them to make smooth transitions from secondary school to further tertiary study, employment or an apprenticeship.
Students can apply to be in the Gateway class or they can choose to be an offline Gateway student and have a work placement only. Workplace preparation courses offer students training in First Aid, Health and Safety, Drug and Alcohol awareness, Interview Techniques and Budgeting skills to prepare for their work placements.
All students have an individual education plan developed for them which includes industry-based learning and a work experience of their choice - for example: Live Sound and Audio Engineering, Event Management, Cafe Barista, Cookery, Tourism and Hospitality, Sports Coaching, Electrical, Plumbing, Building, Automotive, Early Childhood and Primary Education, Hairdressing, Youth Work, Retail and Customer Service ...
