Making great decisions can be difficult: so it is essential that students are given as much information as possible to assist in this process. The Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) is Queensland's senior schooling qualification. A requirement of this qualification is that students complete a Senior Education and Training Plan (SET) plan. In Year 10, we work with students and parents/carers to develop a SET plan. 

The SET plan helps students structure their learning around their abilities, interests and ambitions and outlines the individual student’s aspirations and desired learning pathway. In the SET plan, students identify whether they will pursue a technical (TAFE, apprenticeship, employment) or a tertiary (university) pathway during or after high school.  

Throughout year 10 students are provided with opportunities to explore their options, through the Understanding Future Options Course within the GOALS program. As part of the planning process, students think about their future, consider their abilities and investigate their options for careers and further education. Students participate in a Careers and Transition day in Term 2 where industry leaders, learning institutions and past students to provide students with real life experiences, career and pathway information and attend the National Careers & Employment Expo at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. 

To assist with these decisions, in the GOALS program, students will commence the Understanding Future Options unit, and will investigate and learn more about the options available and making some steps towards completing a draft SET plan. Should parents wish to see the progress of the students’ SET planning or start these important discussions, students and parents can view their draft SET plans at from home via the internet. They will become available from June. Students can access this by logging into their school email account. They will be then asked for their school log in and password. This link takes students to the OneSchool website. Students can then click on the 'My Education Plan' tab to edit or view their SET plan. 

Furthermore, a Subject Selection Evening will be held early in Term 3 of each year. This evening is crucial for students and parents to gain further insight into the requirements of the SET Plan and the implications of the QCE. It provides an opportunity for students to explore potential subject choices for their senior subject choices, aligned with their pathway choices.  Students will complete the subject selection form and enter their subject selections on-line. Details about this procedure will be given on this evening. 

SET Plan interviews will be held at the school in Term 3 of each year. SET Plan interviews involve a representative of the school, Year 10 Parents/Carer and the student. During these interviews students will further develop their SET Plan.  

SET Plans are reviewed at various stages throughout Years 11 and 12 to make sure subjects and learning are right for individual students, and to ensure pathways are maintained to the courses and careers students want after Year 12.
