Link and Launch Program

Helping young people realise their dream

Each year, we take great pride in recognising the efforts of our students who complete Year 12.  From school, many of our students go on to further study, training and employment and ultimately, make positive contributions to our community.

Among each group of Year 12 students, there are some who need additional support to successfully transition to further study, training or work.  

To support these students, the Queensland Government is funding the Link and Launch program. Link and Launch is a school based program, designed to help these young people decide what further study, training or employment might be best for them and to assist them in pursuing their chosen pathway. 

How the program works 

Woree State High School has received funding to recruit Link and Launch officers to connect with young people who have completed Year 12 but not yet transitioned to further study, training or work. These officers can assist young people to navigate a range of post-school study, training and work options in line with their individual goals, aspirations, skills and strengths and support them to make independent choices that will equip them to make a successful transition. Some of the options students may consider through the program include:

  • apprenticeships and traineeships
  • free TAFE for Year 12 leavers
  • Skilling Queenslanders for Work
  • Back to Work subsidies
  • alternative entry to university
  • employment
  • JobActive and other federal workforce participation programs


Our school to host the program 

We are delighted to announce that our school is one of the sites in Queensland selected to run the Link and Launch program. The program commenced at the Semester 1, 2021 and will continue through to 2022. 

Who can join the program 

Young people who are not in education, employment or training and who completed Year 12 in the previous two years are eligible to join the program. Older Year 12 graduates who may benefit from the program are also welcome to join. All eligible young people who have completed their senior studies can join the program irrespective of where they went to school.  Students currently enrolled at our school are not eligible to join the program as we already provide them with career guidance and planning support.  

Please get in touch 

Need help? There are a number of ways to get in touch with our Link and Launch Officer, Amanda Ham-Zammit. If you know a young person who might benefit from this kind of support, please encourage them to contact Amanda on one of the options below.
