We will work with you through the following steps:

1. Select the right course for you

Finding the right course for you is very important! We will work with you to understand your interests, goals and expectations to find the best course for you. Once you have made a course decision, we will provide you with details of the course you are interested in and clarify any pre-requisites or other requirements you may have to meet prior to enrolment.

2. Applying for your course 

To apply, you will need:

  • Unique Student Identifier
    You must have a USI number to enrol to study. To find out more or apply for a USI click here.
  • Pre-Training Review
    This helps us to understand a little more about you and ensure our program meets your training needs.
  • Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment
    The LLN helps determine your suitability for the course and identify any support needs you may have.
  • Interview
    A number of our courses also require an interview, or completion of written questions, or a meeting with the teaching team.

3. Enrolment

Once you have been accepted for the course and have accepted your offer, our enrolments team will work with you on enrolment documents, funding eligibility, your training plan, a fee quote and payment options.  Once enrolment is completed, the teaching team take over and will contact you about commencing your course.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) involves a formal recognition of the skills and knowledge you have already achieved through previous studies, work and life experiences. Students may be awarded full or part qualifications on the basis of their assessment.

Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) and Credit Transfer (CT)

If you have a certificate of results from previous training and your previous training is within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), it will be recognised by TAFE Gippsland. This means that you may apply for credits for any nationally recognised components of training that you have already successfully completed. Provided that your application meets the requirements, you will not have to complete these components of study again.

This also ensures that any Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) Qualification or results you attain whilst undertaking studies at TAFE Gippsland will be fully recognised by all other Registered Training Organisations across Australia.
