TAFE Queensland Brisbane, 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 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. 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 are due to be submitted to these institutions by the end of Term
3, students may find that they have missed the TAFE deadlines for acceptance
