Vocational Pathway Awards

This provides ways to achieve NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3 and develop pathways that progress to further study, training and employment. The Vocational Pathways provide a framework for students to show how their learning and achievement is valued in the workplace by aligning learning to the skills needed for industry.

School leavers are identified from the Ministry of Education’s ENROL system, while vocational pathway award is obtained from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

Identical information is available by regional council and territorial local authority through the Know Your Region pages.

Notes:

  1. ‘x’ = data has been suppressed where there are between 0 and 5 students in the denominator for a specific group, for example Asian students. Where one gender has been suppressed the corresponding gender has also been suppressed. 'na' = not applicable.
  2. Ethnicity is multiple response, that is, students who affiliated in more than one ethnic group have been counted in each ethnic group. Students are only counted once in the total, therefore, the ethnic groups may not sum to the total.
  3. International fee-paying students and adult students (age 19+) are excluded.
