Vocational Pathway Awards 2017 (Level 2)
Level 2 Vocational Pathways Award
The Award enables employers to assess more easily whether potential employees’ skills align with their industry requirements.
To receive a Vocational Pathways Award, students must first gain NCEA Level 2, which is 60 credits from Level 2 and 20 credits from any other level; 80 credits in total. 10 of these credits must satisfy the literacy requirements, and 10 of these credits must satisfy the numeracy requirements. For more information about NCEA go to the NZQA website.
To get a Vocational Pathways Award, a minimum of 20 Level 2 credits must be from Sector-Related standards, with the remaining from Recommended standards to make up 60 pathway credits in total.
(The diagram attached to the bottom of this article shows this relationship.)
The Vocational Pathways Award(s) will show on a student’s NZQA Record of Achievement. This is a real advantage when young people look for work and training opportunities in the sector.
