Vocational Pathways are available to Year 12 & 13 students and provide new ways to achieve NCEA L2 & L3 – the foundation for success in further education and the world of work.
The pathways help you see how your learning and achievement will be valued in the ‘real world’ when you look for a job and start your career.
Achieving Vocational Pathways means that you have developed skills, and achieved in areas that employers’ value, and that you have skills and knowledge that are relevant for their industries.
