The Short Course syllabuses in Literacy, Numeracy and Career Development have been updated and a new Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Languages Short Course has been developed. The Short Course in Career Development has been replaced by Career Education.

The redeveloped Literacy, Numeracy and Career Education Short Course syllabuses may be implemented from 2018. The 2010 Short Courses may still be used until the end of 2018, when these syllabuses will cease. From 2019, schools must use the 2018 Short Course syllabuses.

Please note that schools choosing to implement the redeveloped Short Course syllabuses in 2018 will need to enter student data for these syllabuses into the new Student Management application, instead of the Student Data Capture System (SDCS). The Student Management application goes live in 2018.

The Short Course syllabuses provide opportunities for students to demonstrate the minimum requirements of the QCE.

Students who achieve a grade of C or above in any Short Course will gain one credit towards the QCE. The teaching and assessment for each Short Course is designed to be delivered over 55 hours.
