Programme Content

Canterbury Tertiary College (CTC) is a partnership between secondary schools and tertiary education providers. It's a different way of learning where you complete your NCEA studies at secondary school and start working towards a tertiary qualification.

Discover the wide variety of roles available in the hospitality sector.

If you have a disability, this course provides you with a supported learning environment to help you transition from school to the workplace.

You'll gain first-hand experience in cookery, baking, restaurant service and hospitality service. You'll also participate in practical activities like eating out and preparing a light meal, plus you'll learn about personal safety and basic hospitality terminology.

Note: This is designed for high school students with disabilities that do not restrict mobility and coordination. To qualify for entry to this programme you must have a full teacher aide support and/or be enrolled in a learning support classroom, or be enrolled in a special education unit.
