What are

Vocational Pathways?
 The Vocational Pathways are a tool that provides a clear framework for
 vocational options, support better careers advice and improve the links
 between education and employment.
 The six pathways represent a new way to structure and achieve NCEA
 Level 2 and provide a better framework for foundation education and
 training.
 All programmes in this booklet are colour coded and matched to Vocational
 Pathways and will assist students to develop their own education plan based
 on programmes offered here in Whanganui.
