Vocational education

Longreach State High is a Registered Training Organisation delivering four nationally recognised qualifications on campus. Students can choose to undertake a Certificate II in Kitchen Operations, Certificate II in Work Practices and Certificate I and II in IDMT (Information, Digital Media and Technology). In addition to this, many students in the Senior School are involved in School Based Traineeships or Apprenticeships which allow students to train on the job in paid employment and provide formal training in the process.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a growing area at Longreach State High School and is supported by the VET Coordinator. Many students choosing alternative pathways to complete Year 12 undertake vocational programs to develop employability skills and gain nationally recognised qualifications in addition to the QCE. VET programs are designed to provide practical skills and knowledge and ensure that students have increased employment options available after school. The VET Coordinator provides assistance and guidance in all areas including work experience, School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships.
