The Gateway team is developing a cohesive strategy for supporting our students to make considered career choices. Gateway is offered to Year 12 and 13 students as a vocational pathway into the workforce. The Gateway programme consists of:
- a work experience placement, run on Smart Day
- the completion of 20 credits in class (in Gateway class or another industry-relevant class)
- additional specialist courses
NB: Students can take a Gateway placement without enrolling in timetabled Gateway Support class, however students must be in a Gateway placement in order to enrol in the Gateway Support class.
These placements, as well as relevant units of work, are organised by the Gateway co-ordinator Mrs Sarah Verran-Tye.
In Terms 2 and 3, as agreed with the Smart Paths team, there will be a number of generic courses run for Gateway students (priority students) and all year 12s and 13s. These may include:
- First Aid
- Health and Safety
- Scaffolding Drivers’ Licences
