Some people say it's impossible to do two things at once. At TAFE Queensland, we know that's not true. In fact, we've already proven that Year 11 and 12 students can study a TAFE qualification while at school. After all, they're a very smart bunch.
Our TAFE at School programs give Year 11 and 12 students an important head start on their career, a chance to complete a certificate qualification and possible credit towards further study.
It almost sounds too good to be true, but it isn't!
There are heaps of great programs available check them out.
You won't be surprised to learn that you must be enrolled in Year 11 or 12 and attend a Queensland high school for the duration of the program. You also need to have a Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan in place, so talk your school's Guidance Office, VET Coordinator or Head of Senior Schooling and ask for their help to make this happen.
Then it's 'tough decision' time. You can only enrol in one program with TAFE Queensland so think about the one that's right for you.
It actually costs very little. Students undertaking a nationally accredited qualification at TAFE Queensland as part of their senior studies pay substantially reduced or, in some cases, no tuition fees at all. However, there are material fees for all programs and an administration fee per calendar year and you'll need to meet these costs.
Your careers guidance counsellor can help you to enrol or you can contact your local TAFE Queensland team
