QCE Through Distance Education


Queensland Certificate Of Education

 The QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education) was awarded to students for the first time in 2008. To be eligible for a QCE a student must be successful in a significant amount of learning and meet minimum Literacy and Numeracy requirements. The total amount of learning required is at least 20 QCE credits, which can be gained by achieving a ‘Sound’ grade in five subjects.

However, other learning, such as music or dance exams, a school based traineeship, certificate level courses or a University Head Start program also attracts credits and may contribute to meeting the 20 QCE credit minimum.

The Literacy and Numeracy requirements are met by achieving “Sound” grades in both Maths (any Maths subjects) and English.

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority keep track of each student’s individual learning. Schools are required to register all students in Year 10 and a Learning Account is opened for each student.

Subject credits points are banked in the Learning Account as studies are completed. Students’ Learning Accounts can be accessed through https://studentconnect.qcaa.qld.edu.au/.
