Each year, we take
great pride in recognising the efforts of our students who complete Year
12. From school, many of our students go on to further study, training
and employment and ultimately, make positive contributions to our community of
which we are very proud.
Among each group of
Year 12 students, there are some who need additional support to successfully
transition to further study, training or work.
To support these
students, the Queensland Government is funding a new program.
Link & Launch is a school based
program, designed to help these young people decide what further study,
training or employment might be best for them and to assist them in pursuing
their chosen pathway.
How the program works
will receive funding to recruit Link & Launch officers to connect with
young people who have completed Year 12 but not yet transitioned to further
study, training or work. These officers can assist young people to navigate a
range of post-school study, training and work options in line with their
individual goals, aspirations, skills and strengths and support them to make
independent choices that will equip them to make a successful transition. Some
of the options students may consider through the program include:
Skilling Queenslanders for Work
training or subsidies
alternative entry to university
alternative entry to TAFE
Transition to Work, JobActive and other
federal workforce participation programs
Our school to pilot
We are delighted to
announce that our school is one of four school sites in Queensland selected to
run the Link & Launch pilot program. The program commenced at the
start of Term 4 2019 and will continue through to 2022.
Who can join the program
Young people who are
not in education, employment or training and who completed Year 12 in the
previous two years are eligible to join the program. Older Year 12 graduates
who may benefit from the program are also welcome
to join. All eligible young people who have completed their senior studies can
join the program irrespective of where they went to school. Students
currently enrolled at our school are not eligible to join the program as we
already provide them with career guidance and planning support.
