STAR Courses

Get a taste of this unique & cutting edge career option

The STAR programme is aimed at assisting secondary school students to find a suitable pathway into work or further study. STAR is designed to give students a “taste” of an industry they might find appealing as a career option.

The STAR courses are a fun, practical way for students to get a little experience in their chosen industry and gain an NZQA unit standard. NZIE liaises closely with local schools to ensure we are meeting the needs of the schools and the students. NZIE has STAR courses with specific calendar dates, so schools and students can plan ahead or we can design a specific course to suit the needs of the school.
