It is a well known fact that students take many different pathways in order to achieve future success. Rockhampton State High School encourages flexible pathways to assist students to effectively develop their skills and transition to further study, work, or training.  The Senior Schooling department encompasses both academic and vocational strands. Our brief is to provide opportunities for students whilst they are still at school, as well as establishing a viable educational platform from which they can launch their careers.  The Senior Schooling department at Rockhampton State High School is responsible for: 

  • Career education
  • Vocational education and training (VET) registration
  • VETiS enrolments
  • Work experience
  • School-based apprenticeships and traineeships
  • Senior certification requirements

 

SENIOR CERTIFICATION 

If students demonstrate a significant amount of learning to a set standard, they will be eligible for the senior qualification, the "Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE)".  Students need to achieve 20 "credits" at the end of Year 12 to be eligible for a QCE which can be achieved through courses of study (both on and off the school campus) as well as recognised awards or certificates (eg. AMEB and vocational training - apprenticeships/traineeships).  It should be noted that credits will only be awarded for subjects where the student meet the required standard – eg pass in school subjects.  In addition, students need to meet the literacy and numeracy requirement.
