We are looking for enthusiastic, work-ready students, who can show responsibility by getting out into the workplace, gaining confidence, project a professional manner, and represent Botany Downs Secondary College with pride.
Gateway has gone from strength to strength over the last six years, and with the help of the Tertiary Education Funding (TEC) our intake is up from 40 students to 83 students per year. Hundreds of our students have gained work experience in Customer Service, Automotive, Hospital and Maternity Care, Early Childhood and Food and Hospitality to name only a few. We will endeavour to find work experience in any field that may be helpful for our students to a pathway out of high school successfully with the right work skills. None of this could be achieved without the excellent support of our local business community, the good standing of our college, the support of our staff and parents, and the ambassadorship of our students.
Student applicants will go through a selection process which depends on several things:
As part of the programme, students are able to achieve suitable Unit Standards. As the Unit Standards are a considerable cost to the programme, there is an expectation that the student will complete and achieve the credits offered to the best of their ability. Each student will have the opportunity to achieve up to 20 credits or more at either Level 2 or 3.
If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact our Gateway Coordinator.
All senior students who are interested are welcome to apply.
We are now accepting applications for 2021
Simply download the form, and on completion, deliver to Mrs El-Yassir, Gateway Coordinator in the Careers Centre, located at the far end of the Conference Centre.
The form is also available from our Careers Centre.
