Career Pathways Department
2021 is shaping up to be a big and busy one for the Career Pathways Department. We have 19 Gateway students with placements ranging from Agriculture to Plumbing.
Prior to going out on work placement, Gateway students will be undertaking First Aid and Safety courses to ensure they are ready for work.
There are 27 students in the Trades Academy programme (formerly known as Hokonui Tertiary High School) studying a wide range of courses through the Southern Institute of Technology. Trades Academy begins for the majority on 5 March 2021, with most students catching the bus to Invercargill.
In the recently published SIT Community Newsletter, ex pupil James Fitchett starred, receiving his graduation certificate from SIT Acting CEO Maree Howden. James undertook Gateway and Trades Academy programmes in Automotive and now has an apprenticeship with the Southern Motor Group in Invercargill. Congratulations James!
