The diversity of courses available means there is significant scope for each student to fashion a learning pathway that best suits their needs and interests. In this respect, each senior student should appreciate that their chosen pathway is unique to them achieving their own learning goals, and hence commitment to succeeding in that pathway is expected.
The many pathways open to students include:
- Overall Position (OP) to obtain entry into university;
- Completion of university subjects whilst in yr12 to guarantee entry into university upon successful graduation (Griffith University or Queensland University of Technology) or gain bonus rank points by studying at University of Queensland;
- School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SAT);
- Vocational Education and Training (VET) by attending external training organisations such as TAFE, SkillsTech or private training organisations; and
- Work experience
They are available to all Year 11 and 12 students and in some cases, Year 10 students can access these pathways.
For the non-OP pathways, students need to:
- Be committed to completing the program
- Be prepared to pay for any costs
- Arrange their own transport to and from the external training organisation
- The certification is issued on completion of the course and banked into the student’s Learning Account and recorded on the QCE.
