Secondary-Tertiary Programmes (Trades Academies) give students in Years 11 to 13 opportunities to gain skills and knowledge across a range of trades- based and technology training options. Students combine studies towards their NCEA and a nationally transferrable tertiary qualification at Levels 1, 2 or 3.
ERO reviewed 15 of the Secondary-Tertiary Programmes operating across New Zealand. The Ministry and ERO selected these as representative of the different models of operation and diversity within the models.
