Successfully completing Year 12 is a major milestone for young Queenslanders and provides more options for their future. We are making sure that students have the support and guidance they need to plan for their future across a full range of opportunities and get them on the right track for success.
Key highlights include:
- introducing a new senior assessment and tertiary entrance system
- putting students on the pathway to careers by expanding the number of Vocational Education and Training (VET) options in schools.

Ideas into action
Strengthening senior schooling pathways
Aspley Special School's Step Up program is helping to transition senior students with a disability into work-based options after school.
The school focuses on ensuring students are ready to transition to the broader community as independently as their capability enables.
Step Up provides literacy, numeracy, technology and work and life skills, and supports supervised work placements with local businesses and community groups.
The program paves the way for students to progress to a Redefining Outcomes for Adults with Disabilities pathway program or other work-based post-school options.
