Queensland Pathways State College (QPSC) offers a senior transitions program for young people in grades 10 to 12 (minimum 15 years) who face significant barriers in accessing mainstream education. We actively identify, develop and facilitate clear pathways to post-school education, training or employment, while focusing on student-centred learning, student wellbeing, vocational development and community partnerships.
Students are still able to work towards achieving a QCE while at QPSC. This can be achieved through the banking of already received points from other educational organisations, enrolling in a VET in school option or completing a qualification from an external registered training organisation.
