What is Gateway?

Gateway is a tailored programme for ākonga who have a chosen career path and want to gain the skills and experience needed to further their goals. Structured around work-based learning, Gateway allows ākonga to learn and work while still at school. Full-time ākonga and young adults in a full-time course in Years 11 to 13 can apply for Gateway and complete a work placement and Gateway learning plan, which will give them confidence to go out and achieve their goals.

STAR offers ākonga access to short tertiary courses, either to explore an area of interest, e.g. Barista, or find out more about a particular tertiary course, e.g. Hospitality.

What this course involves

The Gateway programme is a structured, work-based learning programme in a vocational pathway of choice. The Gateway co-ordinator works with each ākonga to develop an individual Gateway learning plan related to their particular workplace and industry.

Ākonga must arrange and complete a regular and ongoing work placement. Over the duration of the work placement, ākonga will receive on-the-job training from their workplace supervisor.

Gateway applications are welcome from our full-time and young adult ākonga in a full time programme and Years 11 to 13 ākonga who are work ready. Places are limited.
