2025 Brisbane Blaze TAFE at School Program

Published Wed 10 Jul 2024

Based at the Queensland State Hockey Centre in Brisbane, the Brisbane Blaze TAFE at School Program promotes excellence by equipping senior high school hockey players with the right tools to pursue success in and outside the hockey arena, while providing a clear pathway to employment in the sports industry.

Students enter the 2-year hockey immersion program in year 10 or 11, attending 1-day a week during the school year while completing two qualifications, Certificate II in Sport Coaching and III in Sport Coaching (SIS20321/SIS30521) delivered by a specialised educator from TAFE Queensland (RTO 0275).

The program is fully contextualised around the sport of hockey and the class regularly transitions between the classroom, pitch and gym to create an active and engaging learning environment. Upon completion, students will earn up to 8QCE credit points, contribute to their ATAR, qualify to work or volunteer in assistant coaching roles at hockey clubs or sports organisations and pathway into higher study.

TAFE Queensland Academy of Sport Manager, Jesse O’Hara said “In a first of its kind in Australia, we have created a fully contextualised hockey coach education program for students in their final years of high school, building in two qualifications so that players get the benefit of an awesome education to support their QCE or ATAR, while learning in a highly engaging and active environment.”

This program is perfect for players who want to incorporate their passion for hockey and the sports industry into their final years of high school.
