Vocational Pathways

rosette-fullThe NZ Qualifications authority has identified six categories of jobs.  The aim is to improve the relevance of learning for students by indicating how their learning and achievement is valued by broad sectors of the workforce. Vocational Pathways enables employers to assess whether potential employees’ skills align with their industry requirements more easily. This will be a real advantage when they look for work and training opportunities in the sector.

Students now have access to their personalised Vocational Profile on the NZQA website and it is important to students use this as a tool to plan their subjects at Level 1. It shows the progress to achieving a formal Vocational Pathways Award.
