The Vocational Pathways can help you plan your journey from learning to earning. They represent a way to achieve NCEA Level 2 (or equivalent) with Vocational Pathways at the same time. You can see how your credits are valued by industry and the types of study options and job opportunities available.
The pathways are flexible and enable you to change your direction as you’re on your journey. You can use Vocational Pathways to plan your career and study options by using the colour coded pathways, and easily see how your skills and interests relate to the industry.
Your Vocational Profile, on your Record of Achievement shows how your NCEA credits are mapped to the Vocational Pathways.
You can use your profile to show employers how your interests and qualifications relate to their industry and support you to do further study, training, or move into work.
Check out your Vocational Profile at www.nzqa.govt.nz/login OR log into the Kamar Portal.
