Level 3 Gateway
Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Page
Background and purposes
Gateway supports students to undertake learning and assessment in the workplace. The programme provides broader educational options and strengthens pathways to further education and training or employment. While students complete a work placement, they have their learning assessed against unit standards. Gateway may lead to employment opportunities. Each student has their own individual learning plan which is integrated into their school-based learning to ensure coherence in the school year. We endeavour to align the learning plan with one of the six Vocational Pathways
Construction and Infrastructure
Manufacturing and Technology
