Senior Curriculum

The Senior Years are an exciting time for students as they develop their skills, knowledge and capacities required to prepare for work in the 21st century.

Senior courses are approved by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) which is the governing education body for all students in Queensland and the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), the national Vocational Education and Training regulator.

Students in the Senior Years must study Religion and Ethics, Essential English and Essential Mathematics. They then choose additional subjects from a suite of elective options, including Vocational Education and Training Certificate courses.  All senior students also spend one day per week at work experience.

TAFE Queensland course options and school-based traineeships and apprenticeships are also available to students.

The College is committed to enabling students to be successful with their learning, achieve the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and have viable work, career and post-school options.

Specialising in Personalised Learning, Seton College will assist students in planning the most appropriate pathway into their future.
