Industry Placement

The students attend the workplace during the normal hours of operation and work alongside the other employees. Students are able to gain a wealth of knowledge in a variety of fields which assists them in making informed career choices. Contact with employers can also lead to part time employment and future job prospects, including Traineeships and Apprenticeships.

School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships

School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships provide a pathway for students who have already made a career choice, or who have developed an interest in a particular industry. These students will have a head start in their working life and the advantage of a smooth transition to the next stage of their education, training and employment.

All Southern Cross Catholic College students can apply for a school-based traineeship or apprenticeship following the SET Plan Meeting process which takes place in the second half of Year 10. Vacancies are advertised in the daily bulletin for students as well as on the Careers Noticeboard, students can also find their own traineeships or apprenticeships. Students can complete or partially complete their school-based traineeships or apprenticeships whilst still at school and their qualifications are nationally recognised. Completed certificates contribute points towards a student’s Queensland Certificate of Education.

Awards

Vocational Student awards feature heavily in the school’s Night of Excellence Awards, including awards for the Vocational Student of the Year and school-based Trainee or Apprentice of the Year.

Students who demonstrate a commitment to the Southern Cross Catholic College Vocational Education program will graduate with a head start in their working life, and can look forward to a smooth transition to the next stage of their education, training and employment.
