The BUSY School recognises the importance of providing the opportunity to improve the social, educational and employment outcomes of young people, in particular, those who have disengaged or who are at risk of disengaging.
We are a Queensland Special Assistance School approved by the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board under the Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Act 2017.
All senior students are provided an individual SET Plan in consultation with our Employment Pathways Officer and Learning Support, teaching staff and parents/carers, in line with students’ interests, strengths and ability. Students are given the opportunity to guide their own learning journeys, as well as enter into the workplace. Student pathways provide students at The BUSY School with the opportunity to complete their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or have been identified to receive a Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA).
Students at The BUSY School will complete three core Applied subjects, endorsed through the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA). All students complete Essential English, Essential Mathematics and Social & Community Studies plus additional electives/courses from a range of Vocational Education and Training courses under the Australian Qualifications Framework.
