HUARAHI - Trades Academy - NCEA Levels 1–3

« Back to Tertiary Link & Huarahi

What is Tertiary Link & Huarahi?

Year 12 and 13 full-time ākonga and full-time young adult ākonga can take a Tertiary Link course. These courses are purchased from outside providers and ākonga can gain standards towards National Certificates through these courses.

Year 11–13 full-time ākonga and full-time young adult ākonga can apply for a place in Huarahi Trades Academy. We have partners throughout New Zealand where our ākonga can attend a tertiary programme for one or two days a week working towards a vocational pathway. Most Trades Academy programmes can only be started at the beginning of the year but there is provision with some providers to start mid-year or at any time during the year.

What this course involves

Huarahi Trades Academy offers ākonga the opportunity to achieve NCEA Level 2 and standards towards a Vocational Pathway endorsement. We partner with a range of Tertiary providers across New Zealand and seek to offer a range of courses to cater for your interests while you also complete work in your Te Kura courses.

Not all programmes are offered in all areas so it is worth asking or checking on the Te Kura website. Ākonga can complete the qualifications over one, two or three years, while ākonga remain on target to achieve NCEA Level 2.

Ākonga must complete a registration form, provide the required documentation and in some cases attend an interview.

Trades Academy places are limited. Read more about Huarahi Trades Academy here.
