Get a head start on your career with OSTC

Do you like the idea of learning by doing? Are you keen to gain real-world skills that will help you find employment?

At the Otago Secondary-Tertiary College (OSTC) we offer practical, career-focused learning for students in Years 11-13 who want to get a head start on life after school. You’ll develop hands-on skills and experience to help you prepare for further study, on-the-job training and employment.

OSTC has a campus in Dunedin and one in Cromwell. 

Study areas

Your programme will be one subject of your NCEA. You’ll spend one or two days a week at OSTC and the rest of the week at school as normal.
