Workplace Endorsed Programs

An endorsed program is a significant learning program that has been developed by a school, community organisation or private provider, and endorsed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. These programs offer a range of exciting activities not covered by traditional school courses or vocational education and training. They can be delivered in or outside of school by a variety of community organisations, universities, training organisations, schools and workplaces. Achievement of endorsed programs can contribute to the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) breadth and depth requirement.


Examples of Endorsed Programs:


  • Cadets WA (Air Force, Army, Navy, Police Rangers, Emergency Services and Bush Rangers).

  • Surf Life Saving WA certificates and awards.

  • Music and Speech and Drama examinations (Australian Music Examinations Board, Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, Trinity College London and St Cecilia’s).

  • Information Technology programs (Cisco).

  • Service Clubs (Leos, Interact).

  • Yachting Australia Small Boat Sailing programs.

  • Diving certificates (Open Water).

  • Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

  • Off-campus Enrichment Programs.

  • Community Arts Performance.

  • University programs (selected units from WA universities).

  • Workplace learning programs


Some programs provide a statement of attainment, qualification, academic transcript, certificate or award as evidence of learning. Others require students to draw together a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate what they have learnt. Copies of these must be given to Mrs Toni Moore in the year that the qualification is awarded.
