The most significant personal accomplishments are made when students are studying in the pathway that is best suited to their academic capabilities, in courses that are personally challenging and in areas of strength that align with their future career and employment goals.

To best cultivate their talents and experience meaning in their education, Year 11 and 12 students have a wide choice of courses within specialised pathways. JSRACS offers six pathways, including ATAR and General courses, an onsite Endorsed Hospitality Training program, Trade Preparation Pathway, and Vocational Certificates through Careerlink and UniReady.

Year 11 and 12 Course Handbook

The Year 11 and 12 curriculum allows students to pursue their interests and develop their strengths as they make decisions about future pathways.


At JSRACS, we offer students six different Pathways to achieve success.

Pathways to Success

ATAR is a pathway for students who are aiming to enrol in university via the Direct ATAR University Entry Pathway. At the end of their studies, students are given a rank derived from combining their school based mark and their external WACE exam mark for their top ATAR subjects.

The Flexible Pathway provides a clear pathway to university, TAFE or an Apprenticeship/Traineeship. The Flexible Pathway allows students to enrol in a selection of ATAR, General and Certificate Courses or School Based Traineeship in Hospitality.

The Hospitality School-Based Traineeship is an onsite School-based traineeship that offers students the unique opportunity to achieve their Certificate II and/or III in Hospitality while getting paid to be involved in the program.


The training is delivered by both JSRACS teachers and our industry-trained onsite Chef in conjunction with a Registered Training Organisation. Contracts for this pathway are approved by the Apprenticeship Office then students are paid for the work they do (minimum 8 hours per week) in the program.

The Trade Preparation pathway is a specialised CareerLink Pathway designed to prepare students for a trade or employment in a related occupation. 


This pathway is a package of six courses that have been specifically chosen to be highly practical and relevant to the trade industries and therefore increase the level of engagement of students in Year 11 and 12 who are manual learners.
