TAFE and other training provider courses


Mansfield State High School is in partnership with TAFE Queensland Brisbane and other external Registered Training Organisations (RTO) to provide opportunities for Year 11 and 12 students to undertake Certificate courses in a range of interest areas, while completing their senior studies. Many courses include nationally recognised industry competencies.
Certificate courses vary in length from one semester to two years. In addition, courses vary in attendance times from one day to one and a half days per week. As most students would miss school lessons to attend courses, they must also have approval from the Guidance Officer before applying.  Timetable arrangements can then be negotiated by students dropping a subject to accommodate the course requirements.  Students in Year 11 and 12 may reduce their study load only while they remain in the course.  
Students need to be committed to completing the courses.  They must also be prepared to pay full course fees on application, material costs and organise their transport to and from their allocated campus.  Campuses are located at Mt Gravatt, Salisbury, Alexandra Hills, Loganlea, Acacia Ridge, and Southbank.
All students will receive some type of certificate on completion of their course. This could be a Result of Assessment, Statement of Attainment or Statement of Attendance. Successful completion of a Certificate course can contribute between 2 – 8 credits towards a student’s QCE.
Students and parents should note that the school cannot guarantee a place in a TAFE course for any student. The success of students being placed in a course will depend on the number of students from various schools wishing to do each course.
TAFE Courses begin in early February. See the links below for further information about courses available, program fees and due dates.
