Star Gateway

Star Gateway

E&E offers throughout New Zealand, short ‘high impact’ courses to High School Students who are completing the Gateway/Star programme, years 11-13. All students receive NZQA unit standard credits at the successful completion of each course. These credits contribute toward the achievement of NCEA L2.

The courses we are now offering to Dunedin students involve retail and cookery skills in our new Booth Cafes on Crawford Street and Great King Street.

In the Workplace Course at Level 2 we are able to take four students at any one time – that is:

  • four students during each term break for a ten day block each term break, and; 
  • four students on each day of the week for four days of the week – thus 16 students doing one day per week for the term.

This programme is similar to the hugely successful retail programme we currently offer to high schools in Auckland and Northland. The Dunedin programme is different from our Auckland/Northland programme in that it integrates retail with cookery and barista skills.

Topics include: personal presentation, customer service, cash handling, barista skills, kitchen safety and hygiene, making sandwiches, and the essentials of baking. Students are taught and assessed by qualified and experienced café staff, and are able to obtain 24 credits in the course. There are small modules of work to complete alongside the practical training. The cost is $480 plus GST per student.

2017 enrolments are open for the July and October term breaks, and for Terms 3 and 4, with an additional option of enrolling through the New Year period for keen students who want to jump start their learning for 2018.
