Gateway offers structured workplace learning opportunities to senior secondary school students throughout New Zealand. It is administered by the Tertiary Education Commission Te Amorangi Mātauranga Matua (TEC).
The Grammar Electrical™ Gateway Program is a 2-day or 5-day apprenticeship for students aged 14-18 years to get practical experience of what it’s like to work as an electrician.
Students will ride along with an experienced electrician as they work on-site to solve different types of electrical problems around Auckland City. Students will learn first hand about the practical problem-solving skills that they’ll need if they want to become an electrical expert.
Students begin with a simple 2-day program and have the opportunity to extend to an additional 5-day program.
Students who get the most from the Gateway Program are typically practical and good with people. They want to explore career pathways outside of university study. They don’t see themselves working in an office job and like solving problems.

Graham Edwards – Head Of Faculty – Auckland Grammar School:
“As a careers advisor, it is my role to help guide young men into the workforce and provide them with opportunities where they can discover a suitable vocation fitting their qualities and interests.
For more than a decade now, Grammar Electrical™ has been an integral part of the success of our Student Pathways programme concerning the Electrical Trades. From meeting our time-sensitive need for boys to trail their career thoughts, to groups of students wanting extended experience in the electrical industry, Grammar Electrical™ has always said yes and prepared to make it happen. I can’t speak highly enough of their assistance to Auckland Grammar School and the confident and organised environment they provide our young men. This is critical as they experience first-hand what is it like to be in the trades.
I believe that undertaking an electrical apprenticeship is an excellent option for any student entering the workforce as some of our students research their career pathway between University and the Trades”

Extremely good service, communication and appearing when expected.
In a competitive industry it is a challenge to find a subcontractor that can offer that balance of competitive price while delivering on project commitments. Grammar have managed to achieve this with the added approach of actively engaging at management level to ensure that they are delivering to expectations.
These guys were really good - installed a light switch in an old villa for us. Friendly and professional. We’d definitely call them again.
Grammar Electrical were very quick to solve my issue that neither Orcon or Chorus would sort. Outstanding response during the lock-down and was a real lifesaver to allow me to work and stay sane. Highly recommend
Had cabling installed for fibre in a second dwelling. Staff were great very professional from start to end. Very knowledgeable. Very happy with job.
Prompt service polite efficient electricians who left the work area clean and tidy did not waste time. I have no problem in recommending them
[Grammar] have provided a professional service, offering practical advice to assist client and consultants for design solutions. Their team is approachable and always looking for solutions to our construction needs. We would recommend them to any other contractor.
Great, contact from initiation through to end of service. Nice, friendly staff. Didn't fall through my ceiling like my last two electrician experiences :) Great job, good advice, was fussy more than I expected. Would use again.
