Structured Work Placement

The Structured Work Placement provides students with experience in the workplace in a range of businesses covering a variety of occupations and industries in the Ipswich and Brisbane area. Those students completing a Vocational Education and Training (VET) certificate where it is a requirement to have some time in the industry, will complete a required number of hours in the workplace.  The aim is to ensure that students are confident the industry area they would like to pursue is the correct fit for them and give students a head start with what to expect from future employers. ​

School-based Apprenticeships or Traineeships

A School-based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SAT) is undertaken part-time while the Apprentice/Trainee is at school. The arrangement combines paid employment, off-the-job vocational training and senior secondary school studies. Students who undertake SATs are supported by the College through flexible timetabling arrangements which are tailored to meet the needs of the individual students.​

Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedure

Any person wishing to make a complaint against the school concerning its conduct as an RTO, whether a complaint, appeal or other matter, shall have access to the complaints and appeals procedure. Complaints include the conduct of the RTO, its trainers, assessors or other staff; a third-party providing services on the RTO's behalf, its trainers, assessors or other staff; or a student of the RTO. An appeal can be a request for a review of decisions, including assessment decisions, made by the RTO or a third party providing services on the RTO's behalf.

All formal complaints and appeals will be heard and decided within 60 working days of the receipt of the written complaint/appeal by the school. The VET Manager will keep a Register of Complaints and Appeals which documents all formal complaints/appeals and their resolution. Any substantiated complaints/appeals will be reviewed as part of the continuous improvement procedure. The principles of natural justice and procedural fairness are adopted at every stage of the complaint and appeal process.​

St Peter Claver College can provide replacement copies of certificates and statements it has issued in the previous 30 years on request.  Applicants must be able to verify their identity based on suitable proof of identity documents.  Please contact the Careers Office for more information.
