Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) 

Recognition of prior learning is about the skills and knowledge gained through work and life experiences.

Many of our students have part time employment, and this can be used as part of a Recognition of Prior Learning application, towards the course requirement for such evidence.

School-based apprenticeships and traineeships

Students can enrol in a study program as a trainee or apprentice in an area of interest to them.  This involves attending 1 day of paid work per week and completing the appropriate training, usually Certificate 3 level, in most areas of employment.

Read more about school-based apprenticeships and traineeships.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

A USI is required for students undertaking nationally recognised training (qualifications, accredited courses, skill sets and units of competency) unless exempt. If you don't have a USI you will not receive your qualification or statement of attainment.

Having a USI will allow online access to a record of training since 1 January 2015.   

This is the link for students to create their USI.

This is a very helpful USI Quick Guide for Students

Complaints and Appeals Policy

Thuringowa State High School has a Complaints and Appeals Policy that applies to all students studying a VET course.

 

Certificates

Within 5 days of the end of the course (usually the end of the school year) the school will issue the certification documentation to the student.
