Students will learn through real, project based, authentic experiences. Units of work are both theory (written) and practical (hands-on).

For example;
• develop effective communication skills
• develop team skills (includes a group project)

• explore career options (research)
• describe ways of managing and coping with change and/or stress
• develop problem solving skills

Units of work will explore a wide range of topics employers have identified as being important in the workplace. 

Successful students will be offered external courses like First Aid, Site Safe and Workplace Safety which are valuable certificates for CV's and also provide NCEA credits. Diligent students may also be offered other training courses like barista and customer service.

At least 20 L2/L3 NCEA credits will be offered. Most importantly, completing this course will assist students in planning for their future working life.

 Students who display reliability and a positive, ready to learn attitude, will be considered for workplace experience placement during Terms 2 and 3. Successful students can also apply to gain entry on to the Gateway programme in Year 13.
