Begin your career with TAFE at School

If you're in Year 11 or Year 12, you can get a head start on your career by enrolling in one of our great TAFE at School courses.

TAFE Queensland North has a huge variety of courses in a range of industries that can get you a Certificate I or Certificate II qualification.

Most courses are either one day or one afternoon a week during school terms.

Contact your nearest campus to see the whole range of programs we offer.

Kick start your career with us!

Students enrolled in our TAFE at School program can gain credit toward their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) as well as get a nationally-recognised qualification. That means studying with TAFE Queensland North gives you the opportunity to move straight into the workforce, go on to further study or even both!

You can also use our qualifications as a stepping stone to university. We have agreements with universities all around Australia (called articulation agreements) which gives TAFE Queensland North graduates credits toward related degrees. You can find out more here.

Our partnerships

We work closely with schools and other training providers to ensure young people in North and Far North Queensland get the best opportunities.

One of our key partnerships is the SchoolTech program in Cairns. This award-winning program is a collaboration between TAFE Queensland North, Woree State High School and Skills360 Australia.

You can find out more about SchoolTech here.

How much does it cost?

A range of TAFE at School Program qualifications are fee-free for eligible students and covered under VET in Schools (VETiS) funding. In cases where a small fee applies, schools will pay a co-contribution fee towards the student's training. Please ensure you research your decision in choosing the most suitable qualification to study as students are only entitled to receive one qualification funded by VETiS.

Some qualifications are not VETiS funded and have associated fees to cover the cost of training. The course information listed on this website includes the cost of the course.

More information about VETiS funding is available under the Vocational education and training in schools (VETiS) section of the Training
