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.

Once courses are available for enrolment they will advertised on the Daily Notices and on the James Hargest College Careers Facebook page.
