What is the QCIA?

Certificate overview
  • The Queensland Certificate of Individualised
    Achievement (QCIA) recognises the learning
    achievements of students who undertake
    individualised learning programs.
  • The QCIA is an official record that students
    have completed at least 12 years of education.

5
Certificate overview
  • The certificate provides students with a summary
    of their knowledge and skills that they may
    present to employers or training providers.
  • The QCIA adds to the suite of certificates that
    the QSA issues and ensures that the educational
    achievement of all students can be recorded on a
    quality certificate.

6
Certificate title
  • Before 2008, the certificate was known as the
    Certificate of Post-compulsory School Education
    (CPCSE).
  • The change recognises the focus on the students
    individual achievement rather than the
    post-compulsory phase of learning.

7
History of the certificate
  • The certificate was first trialled in 2002.
  • It was then implemented for all eligible students
    in 2004.
  • 594 eligible students received the QCIA in 2008.
  • It is expected that over 600 eligible students
    will receive the certificate this year.

Do students have to receive this certificate?
  • No.
  • Schools, parents and students decide which
    educational program is best for each individual.
  • There are several ways in which the students
    achievements can be recorded on QSA certificates
    or statements.

How can this certificate be used?
  • This certificate recognises schooling
    achievements that do not contribute towards the
    award of a QCE.
  • It can be shown to employers as a summary of the
    students knowledge and skills.
  • It can be used by training providers to help
    decide the best training options.
