Case Study
Manurewa High School
The Manurewa High Business Academy programme is preparing students for the future of work, through a partnering approach designed for their community.

The programme integrates multiple partners across three programmes – Passport to Employment, Makerspace, and Future of Work Emergent Curriculum Design. It expands horizons, by creating powerful learning connections with passionate businesses, who offer life changing opportunities and pathways for employment, that smash barriers for young people and their communities. The programme also supports businesses by introducing motivated, talented, and skilled young people, eager to make their mark and grow to their full potential.

Through WGIF connections, Manurewa High School has shared their innovation journey with other educators. It has afforded them greater credibility in influencing policy change; the brand carries weight within the education space and offers external validation for the efficacy of their ideas.
