Elizabeth Hayes School (Years 11 & 12)
Take a look at Elizabeth Hayes School in action.
Students at Mount Alvernia choose one of two pathways to post-school options – one which may lead to further studies and one which may lead to employment or a combination of employment and further study.
The University Direct Pathway (UDP) provides the option of entry into tertiary studies and the Tertiary and Industry Pathway (TAIP) provides Vocational Education that focuses on entry into the workforce.
All pathways allow a student to achieve the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) qualification at the end of Year 12, if she gains at least a passing grade in each of her subjects and studies at least three subjects for four semesters. Each student will also receive a Senior Statement listing all courses studied and results gained, whether or not she qualifies for a QCE.
1. University Direct Pathway (UDP)
- Study of Religion or Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology
- Mathematics A or B
- three (3) other subjects
- study at least five Authority [AB1] subjects (see asterisked subjects)
- remain at school until the final day of Year 12
2. Tertiary and Industry Direct Pathway (TAIP)
Students who choose this pathway will receive a rank assigned by QTAC (SC2), which may be used to access further education at a tertiary institution if they study twenty semester units of Authority-registered subjects or a combination of Authority and Authority-registered subjects. (Authority-registered subjects are developed from Subject Area Syllabuses and, when successfully completed, contribute four credits towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
A student wishing to follow this pathway:
- Should study:
- Religious Education – Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology
