The local ANZ branches were keen to work with the school's Career Centre to see some keen business students investigate career opportunities in the banking and finance industries. The Gateway Extension course encompasses weekly work experience in a local ANZ branch. The placement enables students to shadow banking, including business banking staff, to look at all aspects of of the banking industry. As part of the Gateway Extension course, students also complete a number of NCEA standards by distance learning in their own time.
