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.

The programme will be delivered during holiday times to minimise the impact on the students study at school. Delivery days are Monday through to Thursday 9:30am to 3pm.
