U-Skills Award ceremonies

UCOL celebrates the success of our Year 11, 12 and 13 U-Skills Central Schools Academy students each year at annual awards ceremonies that recognise the commitment, achievements and efforts that our students have made throughout the year.

Held in different UCOL sites throughout the Central Schools Academy region, friends and family/whānau are welcome to attend these events which salute UCOL's young rising stars.


Ceremony details

Ceremony information is provided to all students who have reached the end of the U-Skills programme, ahead of the programme ending (end of secondary school term three). Information will also go to your family/whānau.

Transport to ceremonies can be provided for students and family/whānau if required.

U-Skills Award Ceremonies are fairly informal events where attendees hear from the U-Skills Transition Manager and programme lecturers, and students receive awards of recognition. All students who reached their end of their U-Skills programme are eligible to receive an award of recognition. Three main awards are also given out at each ceremony – 'Outstanding', 'Most Improved', and 'Dedication'.

Students receiving awards should wear smart casual attire. Individuals are welcome to take photos and videos during the ceremonies.

At the end of each ceremony, Lecturers, students, family/whānau and friends will enjoy refreshments and a light supper at the venue.

U-Skills Results

Students' academic records will be sent to their school by the end of the secondary school year and is free of charge. If your school has not received your academic record in this timeframe please contact the U-Skills Transition Manager.

Your U-Skills programme results will be loaded with NZQA by UCOL. We aim to have these loaded by the end of the secondary school year.
