We have some of the best training facilities in the state with industry-relevant workspaces and classrooms. All training is delivered in an adult learning environment so you’ll get to experience what it’s like to study in a higher education setting.
Many schools have partnered with TAFE Queensland with their teachers receiving specialised training to deliver vocational qualifications in school. Even if you complete your course at school you will still receive the same TAFE Queensland certificate.
Get a step ahead of your peers and develop work-ready skills in a vocation or trade during high school. Becoming a school-based apprentice or trainee will also give you the opportunity to earn money while you’re still at school.
Costs vary depending on the course and qualification level. Students undertaking a nationally-recognised qualification at TAFE Queensland as part of their senior studies may be eligible for substantially reduced or, in some cases, no tuition fees at all.

For as long as Taylor Kett remembers she's wanted to be a nurse and a midwife. After starting her nursing diploma back when she was in Year 12, she's now working as a fully-qualified Enrolled Nurse at Greenslopes Private Hospital.
Kaitlin got a head start on her career and took advantage of TAFE at School and Free TAFE for Year 12 Graduates funding to get both her certificate II and certificate III qualifications at no cost to her. While working as a young woman in a male-dominated industry has its challenges, Kaitlin is working hard to prove the disbelievers wrong and inspire other girls to enter the industry that she loves.
From a young age Heather knew she wanted to be a hairdresser, so she didn't want to waste any time in getting qualified. With TAFE Queensland she was able to start her apprenticeship while she was still at school.
Taylor will be one step ahead when she finishes Year 12 with a Certificate III in Beauty Services from TAFE Queensland. Find out more about the TAFE at School experience and how the program fits around your existing high school studies.
