STAR Course

The STAR programme is designed to help Year 11-13 students move smoothly from school into tertiary study or work and typically precedes the Gateway Programme. The purpose is to introduce the student to realistic and possible career choices in a fun, practical environment which is sometimes more suited to the student’s individual needs.

Our STAR programme offers 8 credits at Level 2 on the NQF.
