  • Can Senior students complete a Traineeship/Apprenticeship through Faith?

    Students can complete a traineeship/apprenticeship while completing Year 10-12. Faith’s Future Pathways Officer will be able to assist regarding process available to attain a traineeship/apprenticeship.

  • Can students complete a traineeship/apprenticeship in addition to study?

    Students can complete a traineeship/apprenticeship while completing Year 10-12. Faith’s Future Pathways Officer can assist you with the process for attaining a traineeship/apprenticeship.

  • What is the cutoff date for enrolments for Years 11 and 12?

    Enrolment time has some flexibility. You are best to contact the Future Pathways Officer and talk through your student’s current situation as many options are available. Note that ATAR pathways are a bit more rigid.

  • Can students do courses offered by external organisations as well?

    Yes, Faith students can do courses through organisations such as TAFE. TAFE offers courses that students can do while at school. This is known as ‘Tafe at School’ Program.

  • How many lessons do Year 11 and 12 students have? Are they all online? How many courses per year? How many to graduate?

    This varies from subjects to subject. Generally there are main lesson/s, recorded for later reference and group tutorials for extra help as needed. Most lessons are live online. Some subjects have workshop days (such as Biology, where the practical components are completed). Students at Faith are required to complete a SETP (Senior Education and Training Plan) with the Future Pathways Officer, study at least 4 courses and aim to achieve a QCE with at least 20 credit points by the end of Year 12. Graduation is available to any student who completes their study regardless of achieving a QCE or ATAR.

  • Do Year 12 students have a graduation event?

    We hold a Graduation Ceremony and Formal at the end of each year for our Year 12 students. Graduation is held in Brisbane and is an amazing chance for students to be recognised for their achievements throughout their time at school.
