Enrolment at Thebarton Senior College


Students beginning or continuing the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
Any student who is beginning or continuing the SACE can enrol for all or part of their SACE or to undertake a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course offered by the College. This includes students from other schools wanting to study a SACE subject or VET certificate at the college which is not offered at their school.

Students under 21 years of age wanting to improve their Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR)
Students who are under 21 years of age and who have completed their SACE, but wish to improve their ATAR or gain a university pre-requisite subject, can enrol for full- or part-time study at the college.

Students under 21 years of age returning to education to complete the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
Students who have left school without completing SACE can study a program at the college that meets SACE requirements. This includes Stage 1 and 2 subjects and/or VET certificates.*

Students over 21 years of age
People who are 21 years and older, who have not achieved their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and have not been enrolled and attending a government school for more than 6 months, are eligible to complete their SACE through an adult education provision (AEP). People are only eligible for enrolment to receive the AEP if they are enrolling to complete the SACE.*

*Other information
Adults who have achieved their SACE, International Baccalaureate, tertiary degree or VET diploma, or SACE equivalent qualification (ACSF Level 3) are not eligible to enrol in a government school.

To ensure the department meets its legislative and common-law duty to keep all its students safe, all adult students, before attending, must undergo and present a current working with children check as well as meet the 'suitability of adult students for enrolment' as part of the department's Adult Education Enrolment Policy.
