Level 2 Future Pathways
Where your workplace or trade academy is your classroom and your employer or trade tutor is your teacher. Future Pathways is a practical work experience and trades academy programme designed to extend you by immersing you in the real world of work, building upon Level 1 and preparing you for Level 3. In short, you really learn how to work! As a work experience student, you are contracted to the course and to an employer through Gateway. In addition to classroom learning, you will complete a maximum of 20 weeks’ work experience together with projects your teacher and employer will assess on-the-job. Alternatively, as a trades academy student, you are also contracted to the course and to your tertiary provider. In addition to classroom learning and assessment, you will complete a maximum of 33 weeks’ trade training with the added benefit of acquiring a further 20-35 credits at NCEA Level 2.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
Practical, fun and applied best describes the knowledge learning for a Future Pathways student. From ’how to get a job in five minutes to planning your future pathway beyond high school and negotiating a workplace agreement with a real employer, you build a self-confidence that puts you ahead of your peers in terms of a real awareness of what employers want and need from you as a future member of the workforce. You learn how to write for business, understand workplace needs for personal presentation and working with customers, take the time needed to explore your potential pathways beyond school then plan and take action on these, and understand your rights and responsibilities at work under law. You have the opportunity to take part in further short courses to develop teamwork, leadership and life skills necessary for the next chapter of your young life beyond school. Your employer or trade tutor trains and assesses your practical studies programme. You also complete a Workplace First Aid certificate, qualifying you for two years as a workplace first responder. The routine of a Future Pathways student forces you to quickly learn how to manage your normal school studies with extensive practical learning commitments, to be communicative, organised and thoroughly prepared.
