Students in Senior School work towards a new school qualification - the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
The QCE attests to a significant amount of learning (20 credits) at a set standard (must pass), and specifies a minimum standard of literacy and numeracy. It recognises the acquisition of a broader range of skills, particularly for students enrolled in the Vocational Education and Training program.
The Redlands College Years 11 and 12 curriculum provides realistic opportunities for students to achieve their QCE. Assuming at least a pass in all subjects, students in the OP course are eligible for 28 credits, while students in the VET course are eligible for 28-32 credits. Credit tables for both courses are available.
The QCE replaces the Senior Certificate. Students who complete at least five authority subjects, are also eligible for an OP.
Additional informtion is available to students in the 'Academic Dean - Students' course in the Learning Management System.
