Gateway Programme

2024 Programme

Gateway + Star Programme in Equine Racing & Breeding

Understanding the importance of educating the next generation about the Thoroughbred industry, NZEET, supported by NZTR, provide equine training opportunities for Year 11 to 13 students.

Senior students, with an interest in horses, can enhance their NCEA Record of Learning with equine unit standards, with Gateway and Star Programmes available in most high schools across New Zealand.

NZEET offer an extensive range of training, with students being provided quality resources, workbooks, and assessments developed by industry professionals, enabling them to gain unit standards, skills, real-life experience and make connections that can lead to a wide range of jobs in the Thoroughbred breeding and racing industry.

The Gateway Programme acts as a practical link for students moving from school to further education, training, or employment.

All state and integrated secondary schools are eligible to apply for Gateway, providing a valuable opportunity for schools to actively guide their students' educational and career paths.
