Youth programmes

The Gateway programme is designed to strengthen the pathway for learners to progress from school to workplace learning. Gateway is available to state and integrated secondary schools. It supports senior secondary students (Year 11 to Year 13) undertaking structured workplace learning across a range of industries and businesses around New Zealand while continuing to study at school.

Youth Guarantee focuses on improving the educational achievements of targeted 16 to 19 year olds by providing them with an opportunity to participate in a range of vocational education and training courses free of charge.

Other initiatives include the Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR).
