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 and Childcare.
Outside of school, students in Years 12 and 13 may consider a dual enrolment at institutions such as Ara, Avon City Ford or the National Trade Academy (NTA). 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.
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.
To enrol in a STAR funded course, you must first gain approval from the HOD careers, Mr Stewart.
