Vocational Pathways

rosette-fullThe NZ Qualifications authority has identified six categories of jobs.  The aim is 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.
