The Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) is the senior school qualification for Queensland students.

Our students can work towards a QCE while enjoying the flexibility of being a distance education student.

Your journey towards the QCE begins with the development of your SET Plan. You will meet with our Careers Guidance Officer to determine what you are working towards in the future and what courses you will need to take in order to meet your goals.
