12 Vocational Pathways

12VPT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms P. Leask

The Vocational Pathways course is a Career Education programme designed to equip students with life and work skills which will help them both while still at school and when they leave school.

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 12 to successfully complete. This course is open to all students but 12VPT students must 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, Banking, Hair and Makeup, Automotive, Electrical, Health, Childcare and Primary Teaching.
