TAFE in Schools

 
TAFE Queensland Brisbane (formerly Brisbane North Institute of TAFE) and SkillsTech, and ReddiLab (a TAFE program run by Redcliffe SHS) offer students the opportunity for high school students in Year 11 (and continuing on to Year 12) to complete TAFE qualifications one day per week while still attending school.
Year 10 students should be aware that in order to receive school approval to attend any TAFE training in Years 11 and 12, students will be required to meet academic, attitudinal and behaviour standards before they can apply for a course. As our school’s reputation and relationship with these providers are crucial to our curriculum programs for all students, no one student will have the right to jeopardise these links through unsatisfactory conduct at school, or where academic performance indicates students are best served being at school full time.
A student receiving, on their Semester 1 2014 report card - for any subject -  an “Unsatisfactory “ (U) standard for effort and/or behaviour, and/or  an “E” standard for academic performance and/or who have received more than one suspension from school during Year 10 will not be permitted to apply for TAFE qualification courses for 2015. The criteria for a “U” standard for effort and behaviour are known by students.  A “U” standard will also apply to students who consistently refuse to comply with our uniform policy, particularly with regard to the wearing of inappropriate shoes that do not meet with safety standards as prescribed by the Principal.
In addition, due to the compulsory fees associated with TAFE courses, students wishing to apply to external study must have first met their financial obligations here at school.
Students who have not met our minimum requirements in Semester 1 will have Term 3 and Term 4 to demonstrate improvement and adherence to school routines and expectations. Should this occur, students must arrange to meet with the Deputy Principal (Senior Secondary) to discuss their desire to apply for TAFE, after which they may then be permitted to apply. However as TAFE applications for 2015 are due to be submitted to these institutions by the end of Term 3, these students may find that they have missed the TAFE deadlines for acceptance into courses.
