A student, like any good athlete, will benefit from the personalised support provided by a coach.
That is why at Corinda, we assign every student in the senior school with an Academic Coach. With the support of their Coach, we believe the likelihood that our students will transition into a successful pathway is very high.
The Academic Coach meets with the student at each reporting juncture and assesses their academic progress. Students are provided with a detailed analysis of their academic standing in relation to an Overall Position (OP) prediction to understand whether they are on track to achieve their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). At these junctures, students also discuss their academic goals, set aspirational targets in relation to their academic achievement, and talk about pathway options and support measures that will ensure students can achieve success. A specialised program to encourage high achieving students to continue to excel and to remain focussed is also available.
We feel very strongly about these innovative programs, as do our students, and believe they are a distinctive quality of Corinda State High School—the students’ results speak for themselves.
A SET Plan is a ‘Road Map’ to assist young people in achieving their learning goals during the Senior Phase of Learning.
