About Programme Incubator
Programme Incubator has been running in South Canterbury since 2012. We started with four schools and have grown over the past five years to work with nine schools in the South Canterbury region:
Craighead Diocesan School
Geraldine High School
Mountainview High School
Timaru Boys’ High School
Timaru Girls’ High School
Waimate High School
Depending on the preference of the school we provide between three and five sessions of up to two hours. There are usually at least two different health professionals in each session, showing the students a broad range of the different career options available. Through stories and experiences from health professionals, students are introduced to the wide range of careers within the health sector while learning valuable health and well-being messages.
Work experience opportunities are available for Year 13 students which can range from a one-on-one talk with a health professional to a whole day shadowing someone from a chosen department.
