Qualification overview

3+2 is an exciting government initiative designed for Year 13 secondary school students who have completed NCEA Level 2. Students work towards NCEA Level 3 for three days at school and spend the other two days working towards a Level 3 national qualification with a tertiary provider. Some of the benefits of the scheme are that students will:

• Learn a new subject that you would not be able to achieve at school

• Build on previous achievement and experience at NCEA Level 2

• Work towards NCEA Level 3

• Gain a relevant Level 3 tertiary qualification

• Gain hands on experience in a particular career pathway

• Still be enrolled at school easing the transition into the tertiary study environment

Please Note: Final programmes are conditional to sufficient student numbers.
