Your Plan, Your Pathway, Your Story
In Year 9, MacGregor SHS staff work with students and their parents/carers to develop a Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan.
Developing a SET Plan will help you:
- think about your education, training and career goals after Year 12
- structure your learning in Year 10 around your abilities, interests and ambitions
- decide which learning options you should choose to achieve your learning, further education and training, and career goals.
The myQCE guide to planning your QCE pathway will help you understand the QCE requirements, explore learning options and careers and think about your own QCE pathway.
You'll also find lots of resources on the QCAA website to help you plan your senior pathway.
Think about your future
- Make connections between where you are now and where you want to go.
- Think about your likes, interests, experience and achievements so far.
- Consider your personal strengths and areas to work on.
- Think about the different educational and vocational education and training choices available.
- Consider the subjects you're good at and enjoy.
Explore your options
- Research jobs that interest you, including educational requirements, salary, working conditions, future outlook, and anything else that can help narrow your focus.
- Compare your skills and interests with the jobs you have selected.
- Find out what school subjects (and results) are needed for the jobs that interest you.
- Look at the different costs associated with further education and training options.
Check what you need for your QCE
Make sure your pathway meets the requirements to achieve a QCE. To receive a QCE, you must achieve the set amount of learning, at the set standard, in a set pattern, while meeting literacy and numeracy requirements.
Check what you need for tertiary entrance
To get into many tertiary entrance courses, you'll need an ATAR. To be eligible, you must:
- satisfactorily complete an English subject
- complete 5 General subjects, or 4 General subjects + 1 Applied subject or VET course at Certificate III or above.
Some universities also require prerequisites. Make sure you find out what these are.
