Transition programs

Students are successful when they engage in individualised learning and achievement which supports them to transition through their senior phase of learning into further education, training and employment.

The QCE is Queensland's senior school qualification (PDF,419KB), which is awarded to eligible students usually at the end of Year 12. Some students will be awarded the QCIA (Queensland Certificate in Individual Attainment). To be awarded a QCE, students must have at least 20 credits in the required pattern, and fulfil literacy and numeracy requirements.

Students have a wide range of learning options; these can include senior school subjects, vocational education and training, workplace and community learning, as well as university subjects undertaken while at school to support successful transition.

A Senior Education and Training Plan (SET) Plan helps students structure their learning and transition program around their abilities, interests and ambitions. As part of the planning process, students think about their future, consider their abilities and investigate their options for careers and further education after school.

All students who transition into the senior phase of learning at Centenary SHS will have their own learning account. The learning account records details of learning and results of any completed studies. Students are able to access their learning account through the Student Connect Website.

All students are involved in mandatory preparation activities to support appropriate subject choices in their senior phase. These may include:

•    Year 10 Work Experience & Certificate II in Skills for Work and Training (Current 2017 Year 12 Cohort)
•    Year 10 Work Experience & Certificate II in Workplace Practices (Current  Students connected to the Diverse Learning Department)
•    Year 12 Transition Program (OP-ineligible students only)
•    Year 11 – 12 Structured Workplace Learning
