Gateway Program

“Students leave Waitaki as confident, well-rounded independent young women who can follow their aspirations and make the most of the opportunities in life.”

This programme is an alternative course that allows students to gain some industry-based training and qualifications and an appropriate level. Participants need to have a career focus to be considered for this programme.

A letter of application is required from students wishing to be involved in this programme. This must outline reasons for being involved, long-term career goals plus the level of commitment required to participate.

One day each week is spent in the workplace where students are trainees and are treated as employees. Work-related study is a component of this programme and this may be assessed within the workplace or through Correspondence. Level 2 and 3 Unit standards are available in most career choices.
