Gateway

13GAT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. BUCHANAN

The Gateway programme is aimed at Year 12 but is also available to students in Year 13.  Students are selected into the programme based on their readiness and enthusiasm for work and the ability to work independently.  They must have a clear career path preferably in an area where Modern Apprenticeships are offered, but it is also available to students following university type vocations (with consideration).  Most credits available are at Level 2 so if Level 3 credits are your goal, you need to think seriously about this option.

In class students follow a programme of core units and also study theory that is appropriate to their work placement.  A work placement one day a week for most of the year is set up where students gain credits assessed by the relevant industry assessors.  The programme supports further training or jobs after leaving school.
