Finished Year 12 but the doors aren't opening?
Each year, we take great pride in recognising the efforts of our students who complete Year 12 at Beerwah State High School. From school, it is our aim for all students to transition into further study, training or employment and ultimately, make positive contributions to our community.
Among each group of Year 12 students, there are some who need additional support to successfully transition to further study, training or work.
To support these students, the Queensland Government is funding the Link and Launch program.
Link and Launch officers can assist young people to navigate a range of post-school study, training and work options in line with their individual goals, aspirations, skills and strengths and support them to make independent choices that will equip them to make a successful transition.
Some of the options students may consider through the program include:
- free apprenticeships and traineeships for under 25s
- free TAFE for under 25s
- Skilling Queenslanders for Work programs
- Back to Work subsidies
- alternative entry to university
- federal incentives and participation programs such as JobTrainer
Who can get involved
Young people who are not in education, employment or training and who completed Year 12 in the previous two years are eligible to join the program. Older Year 12 graduates who may benefit from the program are also welcome to join.
All eligible young people who have completed their senior studies can join the program irrespective of where they went to school.
Students currently enrolled at our school are not eligible to join the program as we already provide them with career guidance and planning support.
