Students completing Year 12 in Queensland from 2020 will be issued with an electronic Senior Education Profile (SEP).
The electronic documents are official. They feature a unique document ID at the bottom and a blue signature panel along the top. This certifies they are authentic. Employers or further education providers can also check their authenticity with the QCAA.
Students may request a print copy of their SEP from the QCAA for their convenience if they do not have access to a printer. The following timeframes and request methods apply:
End of year certification
Students can submit a request via their learning account by 31 January (of the year following certification).
Students can submit a request via their learning account by 31 August (in the year of certification).
Print copies are free of charge and are posted in September, once applications for verification have been finalised.
Requests received outside of the above timeframes will need to apply to the QCAA for a print copy. Payment will be required for each printed copy.
Note: students are able to download their official SEP documents via their learning account at any time.
Included in this profile could be:
- Senior Statement
The Senior Statement is a transcript of a student’s learning account. The Senior Statement shows all QCE-contributing studies and the results achieved that may contribute to the award of a QCE.
If a student has a Senior Statement, then they have satisfied the completion requirements for Year 12 in Queensland.
- Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE)
The Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) is Queensland's senior school qualification, which is awarded to eligible students, usually at the end of Year 12. The QCE recognises broad learning options and offers flexibility in what, where and when learning occurs.
- Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA)
The Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA) recognises the achievements of students who are on individualised learning programs. To be eligible, students must have impairments or difficulties in learning that are not primarily due to socioeconomic, cultural or linguistic factors.
