Queensland Certificate of Education Attainment

The Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) is Queensland's school-based senior schooling qualification which is awarded to eligible students usually at the end of Year 12. The QCE records achievement of a significant amount of learning, at a set standard and pattern in contributing studies, while meeting literacy and numeracy requirements. It recognises broad learning options and offers flexibility in what, where and when learning occurs. The QCE is administered by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA).

Attaining a QCE greatly enhances employment prospects and future opportunities for young Queenslanders. This is why ensuring every Queensland State School student has the opportunity to achieve these qualifications by the end of Year 12 is a priority for the department under the State Schools Strategy 2016 - 2020.
