Star Funded Courses and Trade Academies

Within school there are general vocational courses taught that have direct links to vocational qualifications e.g. Automotive, Tourism, Childcare.

Trade Academy - Dual Enrolment

Outside of school, students in Years 12 and 13 may consider a dual enrolment at Canterbury Tertiary College (CTC) for trades courses or National Trade Academy (NTA) for land based courses.  Students do 3 subjects at school and a part-time course off site.  All credits achieved lead to Level 2 and Level 3 NCEA. Students apply through Mrs Langdon to be considered for this option.

Taster Courses

STAR Funding allows Year 10 to 13 students to attend Vocational Taster Courses.  These are 3-5 day courses held at various training providers in the Christchurch area.

Students are selected individually, either by referral or personal choice.
