So, you’re about to finish (or have finished) school and thinking what the holy bananas do I do next?!

Well strap in kid, we’ve got your back!

Introducing… TAFE…


How old do you have to be to study at TAFE?

At least 16!

If you are 15 turning 16 by 30 April in the same year you want to study with us, we will accept you.

I’m 15 years old

The minimum age to study with us is 16 years old. So, if you’re 15, you need to be turning 16 by 30 April in the same year you want to start studying with us.

While you can’t drive on your own yet, you can get into our VCE VM, General Education courses and most of our Pre-Apprenticeships. A pre-app (as we in the biz call them) are perfect for you if you’re wanting to ‘dip your toe in the water’ before starting a full apprenticeship.

I’m 17 years old

We’re pleased to offer you the same courses as a 16-year-old, as well as a handful of Certificate II courses in Early Childhood, Beauty, Business and IT.

I’m 18 years old

You’re in luck! If you find a course that you like the sound of on our website… it’s yours to apply!! But it’s worth speaking with us first make sure you’re eligible.

Just to recap, here’s how you can use TAFE as a stepping stone…
