About Vocational Pathways

The Vocational Pathways provide new ways to structure and achieve NCEA Level 2, the foundation for successful transitions to further education and work. They enable students to see how their learning is relevant for a wide range of jobs and study options in six broad sectors of industry:

Construction and Infrastructure VP2
Creative Industries
Manufacturing and Technology
Primary Industries
Services Industries
Social and Community Services

You can read the Vocational Pathways programme guidance documents, and other resources are available from http://youthguarantee.net.nz/resources/.

NQS developed ASM resources for unit standards in Vocational Pathways

Assessment Support Materials (ASM) have been developed for a limited number of unit standards. They are recommended or sector related for a particular vocational pathway. 

The materials below are intended to:

  • be relevant to both secondary and tertiary settings
  • provide models to assist assessors to develop further tasks
  • make it easier for assessors to assess effectively, efficiently and consistently.

These resources are intended as a guide only. Assessors are expected to adapt them to ensure authenticity and develop assessments that are relevant to the context in which they are being used.
