Gateway

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.

Further information is available from Mrs Sue Ross.
