16 Mar Trades Academy students are building on success at Nayland College

Nayland College joins with 13 other schools in the region for trades education within a tertiary setting, one day a week. Students are transported to and from campus by bus each Friday to attend the course of their choice at the Top of the South Trades Academy.


? Trades Academy 2015 is underway with 50 Nayland College students placed in thirteen of the possible fifteen courses available.? These courses are Aquaculture and Maritime, Automotive Engineering, Beauty, Building and Construction, Civil Engineering, Frontline Services, Hairdressing, Hospitality, Mechanical Engineering, Contemporary Music, Primary Industries, Sport and Fitness.? Students can work towards the NCEA Vocational Pathway(s) endorsements by gaining credits from sector-related and recommended standards.
Nayland has supported the Contemporary Music course with sufficient participants to ensure the course commenced, and feedback has been excellent so far.? There are still a few places available on some Trades Academy courses. Students must be focused, committed to learning and keen to work towards a career in their chosen field.? Any interested students see Chrissy Phillips in Careers Department, Block 2.
