Junior Certificate of Education (JCE)
What is a JCE?
The Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) is a school based junior schooling qualification awarded to eligible students at the end of Year 9 on completion of the Junior phase of learning.
Students who are not eligible at the end of Year 9 to receive a JCE will receive a Statement of Achievement to recognise your learning journey throughout your Junior phase of learning. The JCE will be awarded and will serve as a:
- summary of your achievements in Junior Secondary
- reference document when applying for employment
- record of academic, extracurricular and personal development for use in SET planning in Year 10

There is also a supporting PDF guide.
JET (Junior Education and Targets) planning
JET planning is time for students to reflect on their progress, identify future pathways and use that information to set academic, effort and behavioural targets for the next Semester. Teachers will support your child to set specific, measurable and achievable targets with strategies that will suit their needs. The targets created by students are recorded on their OneSchool account for student, parent and teacher access to create a unified support for the student in achieving their goals throughout a Semester.
In 2020, JET planning will occur during PAL lessons in Week 4 of Term 3 and early Term 4, to create Term-specific targets.
Completion of JET plans also contributes credits towards a student’s JCE.
