Te Aroha College

Smart Paths Programme

We offer Toi Ohomai and Taratahi Tertiary based Smart Path programmes to students in years 12 and 13:

  • Automotive
  • Hospitality
  • Sport Coaching
  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Early Childhood

These are up to 20 credit approved level 2 and 3 programmes that are externally moderated but internally delivered with the support of our external providers and on-site specialty days of intensive learning. The programmes fit within our NZQA structures and are run within our Smart Day programme as full day options.

The Smart Paths programme will continue to be developed to include broader areas of trade-based learning enhancing and linking standard curriculum and other practical Smart Day options for students.

We will also be continuing to support year 11, 12 and 13 students to further explore their future pathways by creating specialist taster programmes at Toi Ohomai and with other tertiary providers.

Smart Path selections will take place during Term 1 of 2019 and do not need to be chosen in this year’s course selection process. However expressions of interest in participation in a Smart Path in 2019 will be required.

  Any student applying for a Smart Path Programme must have full approval form Mr Ken Rowe, Leader of the Smart Path Team.
