Senior Years at

Faith

The College offers a range of pathway options in Years 11 and 12 to cater to the different learning goals of students. Students may choose from General, Applied and Vocational courses.

General subjects are ones that have been approved by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority and for which Faith has its assessment instruments approved by the QCAA. These subjects contribute to ATAR calculation.

Applied subjects have been approved by the Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority. These subjects are four-semester units in length and are studied over two years. In general, these subjects are more practical or applied in nature. One applied subject can contribute to ATAR calculation.

Students can focus on an ATAR score as one option to university entrance or pursue authentic learning experiences designed to take them directly into the world of work. The Senior years are characterised by increased leadership responsibilities and supported by Year 10 as a transition year where students are given introductory experiences to prepare them for the rigours of Years 11 and 12.

As part of our commitment to meeting the needs of diverse learners, we are exploring new pathway options such as tertiary preparation courses, internships, personal projects, and structured study lines led by trained specialists in this phase of learning.

Vocational Pathways

Faith is committed to recognising, and providing students access to a diverse range of learning pathways. Our standing as a Registered Training Organisation allows students to explore pathways that would otherwise not be available to them.

Our state-of-the-art Trade Training Centre offers students pre-apprenticeship training through vocational qualifications in the key industries of Automotive, Construction, Electro- technology, and Engineering. Industry trained and qualified specialist teachers deliver training in simulated workshops, to industry-standard, providing key employability skills and knowledge to meet employer expectations.

Hospitality training is delivered in a modern commercial kitchen, envied by many in the industry, and our very own College restaurant ‘On the Avenue’. The restaurant includes coffee and bar facilities for student training in all aspects of the industry and helps to achieve real-world skills for our students.

In addition, we have developed valuable partnerships with External Providers to extend the range of qualifications on offer to our students. These range from Certificate II through to Diploma level in key employment growth areas of Beauty, Business, Crime and Justice, Fitness, Health and Agriculture.

The College timetable is structured to allow students to select the range of subjects that best suits their chosen pathway, whether that be an ATAR pathway, an ATAR pathway complemented by a VET elective, or a complete VET pathway. The College values all students, their potential, and talents, and hopes to provide pathway opportunities that support them with reaching their future career or study plans beyond their time at Faith.

One of these certificates (at level III or above) can contribute to the ATAR calculation under the 4 (General) + 1 (Applied or VET) model.

School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

This type of learning experience is an authentic and flexible window into the working world. Under a government-supported, contractual arrangement, students participate in a day of paid work with an employer in an industry of their choice. This allows them to train towards a nationally recognised qualification in a complementary field.

Students can combine a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship with studying for their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE)and/or contribute to their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).

Typically, school-based traineeships and apprenticeships can commence for students from Year 10 to Year 12 and are generally completed prior to the completion of Year 12 except for school-based apprenticeships that are regulated to 30% of overall training.
