ATTENTION: As much as we’d love to offer more, we can only offer one Free TAFE course per person. If you’ve already enrolled and commenced, or enrolled but didn’t complete a Free TAFE course at any Victorian TAFE in the past you will NOT be eligible for another and will need to pay tuition and materials fees when you enrol. Reach out to us if you think this is you.
The need for extra support in schools has never been greater, and we’re here to help you gain all the skills you need to play an important role in the future of our kids.
Whether you’re looking to work in public, independent or specialist schools, a Certificate III in Education Support will give you the skills and knowledge to support students and staff in pursuing their dreams, while also achieving your own.
The possibilities really are endless: from working as an integration aide, an office administrator or even a teacher’s aide, you’ll learn everything you need in this nationally accredited qualification.
The course structure is also designed to fit into your life as easily as possible. Attending all your classes on the same day each fortnight, you’ll have the flexibility to study when and where you can outside of designated class times.
At the end of course, you’ll be qualified to work in the industry, gaining hands-on experience and achieving your career goals, while you take the time to think about your next career move.
One of those career moves could be a Certificate IV in Education Support. This course will provide even greater opportunity to work in the sector, as you work and study at the same time. This means you’ll be putting what you’re learning into practice, making you more confident and increasing your employment opportunities.
We’ll teach you all you’ll need to kick-start an exciting career where you really can be anything you want.
This course is delivered with a combination of online and on campus workshops.
