Information for Gateway Coordinators

Zeal offers a range of Gateway courses at our Zeal centres across Aotearoa.

Why Zeal?

We provide a supportive, engaging and hands on experience for young people to learn their chosen skill

Young people learn real skills that they can put into practice through our events, showcases or barista work.

Students are welcome into the wider Zeal community, including hangs, events, mentoring , camps and more

Our spaces and people are a reflection of our work. Our spaces are unique to other educational spaces

We stay connected after the programme. Young people have the opportunity to stay in touch including if they need references

We are dedicated to helping young people gain their credits. If a young person doesn’t pass we will do what we can to support this young person to achieve
