Concordia to introduce Senior Academic Pathways in 2019

Thursday 21 Mar

Concordia Lutheran College will introduce dedicated Academic Pathways for senior students for the first time in 2019. Head of College Mr Adrian Wiles has announced that students from Years 10, 11 and 12 will have the opportunity to build a learning profile through their academic studies that will lead to future tertiary studies, cadetships and work opportunities.

Mr Wiles said three key areas have been identified as the focus for the Academic Pathways program in 2019.

“Key areas such as Health, AgriTech and Education will be prioritised in the first instance to provide students with real-world training and experience in these growth industries,” Mr Wiles said.

“Our Academic Pathways will combine Queensland Certificate of Education subjects, selected and focussed vocational courses, experiences in industry and visitation programs to supplement and enhance student learning,” he said.

“Lead-in programs such as the University of Southern Queensland’s Head Start program will also be integrated to provide targeted pathways for students.”

Mr Wiles said new subjects would be introduced to complement the Academic Pathways with Year 11 Psychology to commence in Term 1, 2019.

He said the development of personal attributes such as entrepreneurship, collaboration and leadership would underpin each pathway and form a key component of the program.

“Our objective is to ensure the Concordia graduate is confident, well-prepared and ready to enter the world of work or further study.”
