(23/08 Enrolment Forms Available from Careers now for 2022)


Gateway programmes are available to Year 11 to 13 learners who want to explore job options while studying towards NCEA.

Newlands College offers a Level 2 class based Gateway programme for Year 12 students.  Year 13’s may apply to the programme at the discretion of the Gateway Coordinator in consultation with the Dean.

We also offer Gateway Programmes to students not in the Gateway class.  These programmes are done on top of their current workload so students must be motivated and have excellent self-managment skills.  Programmes may be in the holidays, afternoon/ evenings or during school time.

In the Level 2 Gateway programme students will:

  • study for NCEA Levels 1 to 3
  • try out a job in a real work environment
  • learn and be assessed for specific work knowledge and skills
  • study for trades-related credits
