Vocational Pathways

The Rockhampton Grammar School delivers one of the most successful vocational education programmes in Queensland, with over 96 percent of all graduates achieving at least one certificate-level qualification.

It is important to us that every student at RGS has a clear pathway after school - be that university, a trade or entering the workforce. ”Ms Cindy Murray, Head of Vocational Education

Work Experience

Work experience is offered to RGS students in Years 10 - 12. This is an effective way for students to prepare for the workforce, create networks and build relationships with employers, while gaining insights into the type of work involved in their area of interest.

The Head of Vocational Education works closely with students, parents and workplaces to ensure the work experience placement is a positive and worthwhile experience for everyone involved.
