Abstract or Summary

What are the primary objectives of the Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR), in terms of both the national and regional focus? STAR, funded by the NZ Ministry of Education (MoE), has been assisting NZ secondary schools to better meet the needs of year 11-13 students since the mid to late 1990s. The Wintec School of IT commenced its participation with STAR in 2009 by providing an interactive multimedia technologies taster course. The following year an additional taster course, games programming, was added. This poster reviews the impact of STAR enrolments for the Wintec School of IT, in terms of student progression onto full time certificate, diploma and degree programmes.
