Vocational Education

Lindisfarne Grammar has taken the unique approach of offering multiple pathways for students as part of the senior secondary certificate that provide credit towards a nationally-recognised VET qualification within the Australian Qualifications Framework.

The training that students receive reflects industry specific competency standards and is delivered by a Registered Training Organisation, such as TAFE, or delivered at the School as part of the Year 11 and 12 academic program.

A key success of VET at Lindisfarne Grammar is the integration of vocational options within the traditionally academic studies at the senior Secondary School level. This allows our Year 11 and Year 12 VET students to:

  • develop industry specific skills
  • gain nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training qualifications and units of competency while still completing their senior Secondary School qualification
  • develop employability skills and an understanding of the world of work
  • gain an understanding of the world of work that provides valuable experience in assisting with planning and pursuing their career pathways.

To ensure students are fully supported, the School has many established partnerships, with TAFE on the Tweed and Gold Coast, universities, as well as private colleges such as the Queensland International Business Academy. The School has adopted a proactive approach by contributing towards the costs of many different VET courses. Students can choose from a wide range of internal and external VET courses to ensure they are industry qualified and experienced by the conclusion of Year 12.
