About this course

This program leads to an ACT Senior Secondary Certificate (Year 12) . It provides you with opportunities to gain: a formal senior secondary qualification; admission to tertiary institutions through an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR); entry to CIT courses requiring an ACT Senior Secondary Certificate (Year 12) ; entry to specific careers such as the armed services; skills and qualifications for employment; levels of knowledge for specific technical or tertiary programs; or to develop personal skills and interests.

You can now complete other CIT vocational programs as part of your ACT Senior Secondary Certificate (Year 12) . An option of an evening program is available for Mature Age students, subject to funding.

Entry requirements

Under ACT BSSS policy there are four categories of student who may enter the ACT Senior Secondary Certificate (Year 12) program. The category is determined by age and/or by previous study history. If you are from a culturally or linguistically diverse background and are using English as a second language, you should have language skills equivalent to those at the end of the CIT program Certificate IV in Spoken and Written English.

Entry requirements for the intensive package are that you must demonstrate that you have the necessary academic reading and writing skills, and that you understand the maths concepts required, to successfully complete an intensive ACT Year 12 tertiary package.

You will undertake a skills evaluation at enrolment to determine your readiness to enter the one-year tertiary package. Alternate and preparatory programs are available for skill development if needed.

NB As the intensive program covers work normally completed in two school years, you also need to commit significant time for both class attendance and private study.

The program that is best for you will be discussed at enrolment.

To study any course at CIT (excluding degrees and non-accredited training) you must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
