2019 - Year 12

 

Senior schooling considerations
 
Choosing subjects for Years 11 and 12 is very important and requires you to give full consideration in order to adequately prepare you for your future. The choices you make now will guide you towards what options are available to you at the end of Year 12.
You may choose to go straight to university or TAFE or you may choose to enter the workforce with the option of undertaking further study or training later. You no longer need to take five or six authority* subjects because this is the only opportunity of accessing better careers and jobs. There are many vocational educational pathways including traineeships and apprenticeships open to students in their senior years of education.
In order to assist students with making good post Year 10 choices, the Queensland Studies Authority has developed the QSA Student Connect website.  This site has been designed with a Queensland focus to provide students and their parents or caregivers with accurate, up-to-date and useful information. It provides access to a range of information resources, including:
• the national career information service, My Future
The Student Connect website has been developed into an individualised service linked to each student’s learning account. Students are able to use their own learning achievements, interests and goals to map out personalised career pathways based on up-to-date career information.  To access this service students require their learning account ID and password.  These will be handed out when you attend your SET plan interview.
Students should remember that success in any form of study requires a high degree of commitment and hard work.
Learning is a life long process.
* Authority subjects are subjects accredited by the Queensland Studies Authority e.g. English, Maths A, Art, Chemistry etc.
