Choosing Unit Standards for Your Students

You can use this website to help your students find appropriate unit standards in their chosen career.

Our Gateway material is organised into different career pathways. Each career pathway will give you a summary of what it’s like to do that job, the key skills that they will need, and also the areas they can specialise in (with the unit standards for those areas.)

You can choose to do individual unit standards or as combination packages where two or more related unit standards are grouped together under one assessment. This makes it easier for the student to achieve more credits and more cost effective for the school.

Help your students to choose appropriate acheivable unit standards, remembering that 1 credit is approximately 10 hours work in total (this could be time spent reading the learning material, practicing the tasks at work, learning from their workmates and completing the practical assessment).
