Senior secondary

Our senior programs offer our students a diverse range of academic and vocational pathways through the senior phase of learning, which are focused on ensuring all students are best prepared for life after school.  Through a strong focus on our performance improvement agenda, students are supported to identify learning pathways and selection of a suite of subjects that will enable them to achieve success. 

Our aim is for each student to achieve a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), a Vocational Educational Training (VET) qualification and where relevant, access to a tertiary pathway. To enable this, students are able to study a broad range of subjects appropriate to their career or tertiary pathway. These subjects include: 

  • Authority and Authority Registered subjects as per syllabus documents set out by the Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority (QCAA) previously known as Queensland Studies Authority (QSA). 
  • Certificate I, II and III courses delivered on campus. 
  • School based apprenticeships or traineeships (SATs). 
  • Technical and Further Education (TAFE) and external Registered Training Organisations (RTO) offerings – Certificate II, III and IV and Diplomas. 
  • University courses (e.g. University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) – Headstart). 

To maximise opportunities for students to achieve success in their desired pathways, subjects are grouped to support this. Students are provided with advice and guidance to carefully select a suite of subjects from these groups that best fit their learning and future needs. This reflects that sub school’s philosophy of ensuring students are undertaking the right subjects within the right pathways, and the valuing of both academic and vocational curriculums.
