​​​​​​​At Aspley State High School, we know that to be successful in any of the pathways available, senior students will be required to:

  • Adopt a Growth Mindset to their learning – put in their best effort, seek and act on feedback and use the strategies we teach them
  • Challenge themselves to do the course of study they are most capable of and be comfortable in the knowledge that the best learning happens when it is difficult
  • Engage positively in all classroom learning
  • Actively complete class learning reviews at home
  • Develop their collaborative learning skills and their abilities in the 21st Century Skills that underpin all our senior subjects.
 


We know that each young person has unique abilities, interests and aspirations and we will work with them, to find the pathway that best suits them. 

To ensure students are working to their potential, when conducting progress interviews with students we ask them to rate their progress and participation.

Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan

During Term 3 of Year 10, students will undertake various activities to assist in the decision making process regarding their future education and/or training and employment pathways.

As part of this process, students and their parent/guardian will complete a Senior Education and Training (SET) plan interview.

Various documentation will be signed by both parents and students regarding expectations for their senior schooling. Two of these important documents are the:

 

Year 11 and 12 Curriculum

The key component of senior schooling is the attainment of a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), which is awarded to eligible students, usually at the end of Year 12.

For more information regarding the QCE please see the below QCAA Fact Sheets:
