Career Planning

Years 9 and 10 

During Ārahi time students will be delivered a careers-based programme.  This will include exploration of RIASEC theory and a waka activity from the Rangitahi Futures Programme.  Students will also become familiar with career apps such as “Occupation Outlook” and “Future Jobs Finder”.  


A Careers programme will also be run by the HOD of Careers and Future Pathways in conjunction with the Social Sciences Learning Area.  Social Studies teachers run the Real Game.  Careers staff will run a week long programme with each Year 9 core class in Term 4, in which basic personality testing is conducted, and students are made aware of career terminology and the future pathways which are available to them. 

Year 11 

In addition to the unit in Ārahi time, a careers programme is delivered via Year level asemblies to all students. 

Years 12 and 13 

In addition to the unit in Ārahi time, opportunities will be available for students to have a work placement, attend a STAR course, and have a ‘Student for a Day’ experience at NMIT.  They will visit the Careers and Trades Roadshows and participate in other career related events outside of school and hear from visiting speakers about study and career options. Students can also have an individual career planning session with the HOD – Careers and Future Pathways. Some students may also choose to participate in Trades Academy or Gateway as one of their curriculum subjects.
