Atweh, Bill, Singh, Parlo, Taylor, Sandra C., & Knight, John (2006) Broadening Post School Options through Curriculum Engagement: A report to the Queensland Studies Authority. (Unpublished)


The research study reported here investigated the influences shaping Queensland year 11 and 12 students’ post school aspirations and their sources of information about post school options and pathways. In particular, the study focused on the relationship between students' post school plans and curriculum provisions, school organisation, and scaffolded learning. The aim of the research study was to provide detailed, up-to-date information about these issues across a broad range of Queensland schools and student/staff cohorts. In addition, the study also investigated how social, cultural and economic factors might impact on students’ subject choices and post school aspiration.
