Gateway is a work-based learning programme which provides students with the opportunity to get hands-on experience in an authentic working environment in an area of interest to them. It is available to Year 13 students who have a genuine interest in gaining an apprenticeship, enrolling in a pre-apprenticeship programme or going directly into the work force once they finish school. Students spend one day a week in a workplace to gain an insight into what their chosen career involves. They will develop specific skills to their chosen career, along with generic work-ready skills which will help them become successful employees in the future. A broad range of work experiences are available for the boys and can include building, plumbing, electrician, hospitality, retail, horticulture, agriculture, automotive and tourism placements.
