The Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment, and the Minister of Education, recently announced DualPathways – a new secondary-tertiary pilot that will run from 2017.
Applications close on 10 October 2016.
DualPathways builds on sector feedback about the Secondary-Tertiary Programme (STP) Pilot, a smaller pilot that finishes in December 2016.
From 2017, the DualPathways Pilot will help students achieve qualifications at Levels 2 and 3 and help them move into employment or further education. About 1200 places will be available nationally next year, and 1500 places in 2018.
DualPathways programmes will be developed through partnerships between schools and tertiary education providers. Industry training organisations can also be involved by linking with a tertiary provider.
DualPathways students will be enrolled part-time in secondary school and part-time in either tertiary education or industry training.
Schools who want to take part in the DualPathways Pilot in 2017 should contact local tertiary providers to discuss programme opportunities.
If a school doesn’t have existing relationships with tertiary providers, Ministry of Education Secondary-Tertiary Leads (click on the region you require to gain their name and contact details) can provide contact details and facilitate discussions and engagement.
