We feel it’s crucial for secondary school level students to look forward and plan ahead for their career in tech. Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) programme is a fantastic opportunity for secondary school students to look into academic options outside traditional education providers and explore more practical, industry-aligned pathways that fast-track their learning and career. TechSchool plans to run STAR programme-focused workshops during school holidays this year. Watch this space!



TechSchool is invested in secondary schools

Tech to the future


STAR programme enables schools to:

  • Form partnerships with tertiary education providers and businesses to provide vocational education and work experience at secondary school level.
  • Provide an early introduction to the way the industry works and instil interest in further learning and career.
  • Achievement of NCEA and tertiary qualifications within the NZQA framework.
