Gateway and STAR
The Gateway program opens new pathways from high school to tertiary study and workplace learning. It is a great opportunity for students to experience workplace learning and tertiary study prior to making decisions about their career path.
We run Gateway programs in Hairdressing, Barbering and Makeup, and unit standards gained through the Gateway program leads to nationally recognised qualifications and counts towards NCEA qualifications.
