Gateway

Alongside our full-time Tertiary Courses NZIS are now running Gateway Courses for Level 2 and Level 3. These courses are run as a fun holiday programme over one week of the school holidays and provide students with an introduction to the sports industry to determine if it’s the right career for them. Register now.

The NZIS Gateway programme includes practical sessions, classroom sessions, work placement, guest speakers and fitness fun. Gateway allows your students to gain hands-on experience while continuing to study at school.

Both courses will run every school holiday break and can be personalised to suit the groups attending.

Level 3 Gateway Testimonials:

“I loved doing the Gateway programme, enough to give up a week of my holidays for it! My favourite part was the few days we spent doing various sports around town and even watching the Hurricanes train. I learnt a lot! I would recommend this experience for anyone that loves sport and being part of a family environment.”
Emily Thompson, Newlands College
“I really enjoyed this week of course. I really enjoyed getting experience in coaching and reffing. I love all the teachers here and they helped me out really well. I’m hoping to come here next year to study. This week has been a great experience for me.”
Josh Crombie, Wellington High School
