​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Yeppoon 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 and may be used in the calculation of a tertiary entrance rank score for students wishing to apply for university.  VET subjects tend to place more emphasis on practical skills and knowledge and can develop specific skills relevant to employment.  

All students enrolled in a VET course through Yeppoon State High School are required to complete a VET Induction. If students think they may already have the skills and knowledge being assessed in their VET course, they can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning. 

Any students who are not satisfied with the training they received at Yeppoon State High School or disagree with the assessment decisions are able to submit a complaint as per our Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures.

Work Experience

Work experience is organised for students in Year 10 and upon request for students in Year ​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)

School-based apprenticeships and traineeships are available to students in Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12.  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.  

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

All students studying a VET qualification must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) before enrolment and 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.
