State High School offers a range of Vocational Education and Training (VET)
opportunities for our students. These courses contribute towards the
Queensland Certificate of Education. They are not used in the calculation of an
OP but may be used in the calculation of a tertiary entrance rank score for
students wishing to apply for university without an OP. VET subjects tend
to place more emphasis on practical skills and knowledge and can develop
specific skills relevant to employment.

students in Years 10, 11 and 12 at Yeppoon State High School. Work experience
allows students to gain experience or knowledge in a variety or work situations
to help them in future career choices. Experience in the workplace is
invaluable in building confidence, self-esteem, discipline and team work.
School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SATs)
State High School offers students in Years 11 and 12 the unique opportunity to
make an early start on their chosen careers. Senior Schooling staff help
students with information about opportunities as well assisting students with
applications for these positions. Traineeships and Apprenticeships
involve paid work as well as off the job training towards a recognised
qualification that will contribute to the Queensland Certificate of Education
and appear on their Senior Statement. In many cases school-based
traineeships and apprenticeships lead to post-school job prospects.
Previous students have successfully completed school-based apprenticeships/traineeships
in the areas of automotive, engineering, hairdressing, allied health, aged
care, disability services, electrical, business administration, retail,
horticulture. Students interested in a
school based apprenticeship/traineeship are encouraged to see the staff located
within the Capricorn Coast Trade Training Centre. Positions vacant are
advertised on the daily student notices every week.
students studying a VET certificate must have a Unique Student Identifier
(USI) before a statement of attainment or qualification can be awarded. Students
need to apply for their USI at usi.gov.au and give a copy of this number to
the HOD – Senior Schooling for recording.
