The Centre for Studies in Multiple Pathways (CSMP) aims to create a resource hub that will provide stakeholders with general information, research findings and developments on Multiple Pathways. In addition, the Centre will provide networking opportunities where knowledge and expertise can be freely exchanged through events such as seminars, conferences and international symposiums.
"Multiple Pathways", put simply, means the creation of individual and flexible learning pathways for students. Research clearly indicates that the Multiple Pathways model achieves better learning outcomes and opportunities for students. Here, at Manukau Institute of Technology, the establishment of New Zealand’s first blended secondary-postsecondary School of Secondary-Tertiary Studies is one such example.
