The STAR programme facilitates students’ transition from secondary school to tertiary education and training.

Schools are funded to place students on tertiary level or non-conventional subject courses while still attending school. Students may commence study towards credit for unit standards, national certificates, diplomas or degrees. Enrolment options range from joining EIT classes to courses run specifically for groups of secondary students. Flexible delivery options include block courses in school holidays, distance learning programmes, off-campus activity, articulation and/or joint delivery agreements.

STAR courses that EIT offer are listed here.  If you are interested in doing a STAR course speak to your High School STAR  Coordinator.
