13 Vocational Pathways
Teacher in Charge: Ms P. Leask
The 13VPT course is a Career Education programme designed to equip students with life and work skills which will help them both while at school and when they leave school. 13VPT has more of a focus on the transition process to tertiary study, work or training.
While the course builds upon the skills developed in 12VPT, there is no prerequisite for 13VPT. Students complete Core Skills Unit Standards in class and may apply for the Gateway Programme as well.
The Unit Standard workbooks are self-paced and require a level of literacy appropriate to year 13 to successfully complete. Students choosing Vocational Pathways must also be willing and able to work independently.
Gateway work experience placements vary depending on the student’s interests and availability of places. Gateway provides opportunities in a range of sectors including (but not limited to) Sport, Computer Hardware, Computer Software, Retail, Hospitality, Hair and Makeup, Automotive, Electrical, Health, Childcare and Primary Teaching. Unit standards for 13VPT may differ from year to year depending on availability and TIC discretion.
Assessment: Please note the specific Unit Standards covered in this course are subject to change depending on TIC/HOD discretion, external providers and student needs. Minimum of 20 credits at Level 3.
Total Credits Available: 16 credits.
Internally Assessed Credits: 16 credits.
We aim to enable every student to have the course that they prefer, however, some courses have limited places or pre-requisits that may restrict the student's choice.
