STAR COURSES

What is STAR?

A Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) course introduces secondary school students to training for a specific career.  STAR courses are short and are available through polytechnices and private training organisations.  Students participate in short-term programmes or "taster courses" for a few days at a time, or one day per week for several weeks; and longer-term programmes leading into Gateway.  Where possible courses have been aligned with Vocational Pathways, a new way to structure and achieve NCEA Level 2.
