JC Pathway

Each year a small group of students (approx. 15) who are entering Year 11 are identified and invited to join our JC Pathway. These students would find it challenging to see success in some elements of the mainstream programme. In its place is a more personalised learning pathway which still leads to NCEA L1 and L2. Once students start on this pathway they will stay on it until they leave St John’s College, moving from 11JC to 12JC and then on to tertiary training, apprenticeship, or job opportunities at the end of Year 12.

Academic provision in school is blended with access to STAR funded courses which give students the opportunity to undertake work related learning and gain relevant experience for the workplace. This leads into a more formal work experience placement that students undertake in Year 12 via the Gateway programme.
