Gateway provides long term structured workplace learning for senior students and is funded by the Tertiary Education Commission.
Students likely to participate are those interested in a particular career in a specific industry, or those students who wish to collect a wider range of skills than can be provided at school.
Local businesses are asked to provide a placement. Learning will focus on Industry Specific Unit Standards, so that the student may take a meaningful pathway toward a career in that area.
Students attend their work placement for one day per week for the school year and are given the opportunity to ‘trial’ their career choice.
