Unit Standards in Schools

The aim of this programme is to work with schools to focus on building an experience in the classroom that will meet the needs of the students and embed unit standards into that experience.

There are two pathway options that schools may choose from. Each has its own context and pathway for development across level 2 and 3. It is advised that the schools work with a context that is applicable to their students, school, and wider community.
