Completing year 12 is a significant milestone and all students should be very proud of their achievements. Emotions may run high as graduation marks the closure of one part of their education and heralds the beginning of a lifeline journey of learning.
There are so many opportunities available to students leaving year 12. Here are just a few:
The state government has introduced free TAFE for year 12 graduates and free apprenticeships for Queenslanders under 25.
There are over 130 apprenticeship and trainee programs and over 90 TAFE courses available for free.
Go to these websites for more information:
The Skilling Queensland for Work program can help you gain the skills, qualifications and experience you need to enter and stay in the workforce.
One of the most important things you can do when you turn 18 is vote - its compulsory to vote in local, state and federal elections so make sure you visit www.aec.gov.au to enrol.
