Careers and Pathways

The Careers Department focuses on individual career pathways that inspire, encourage and enable all students to develop the skills to become resilient, confident, connected and actively involved in lifelong learning. Programmes are developed and implemented both in the Junior and Senior schools to encourage the boys to develop a sense of a potential career pathway. The Careers office (Tahunga) is open at interval and lunchtimes to assist the boys in making good choices for future pathways.

The Gateway programme continues to work successfully for many senior students. Gateway opens a new pathway from school to the world of work, which is an excellent opportunity to blend school study with workplace learning and experience. Units are assessed in the workplace and at school, counting towards national qualifications, and the students are given a chance to prove their worth within their work placement often leading to an after school job, apprenticeship or offer of full-time employment.
