Gateway is a work-based initiative by the Tertiary Education Commission that provides opportunities for senior students by combining work experience and industry based learning. Students have an individualised programme based on an area of interest, targeting specialist workplace skills and preparing for future employment.

Gateway students engage directly with industry through their work placement one-day-per-week. In school, students develop their future career plan and gain skills that increase their employability (i.e. first aid, health & safety) whilst enhancing their communication, time management, and confidence.   

To be eligible for Gateway, students must have NCEA Level 1.
