How do I qualify for study at TasTAFE?

We have experienced staff and course counsellors available to discuss your study options with you.  Our staff will work with you to ensure your goals and skills are adequately matched to relevant courses and qualifications and ensure a learning pathway is in place to meet future learning goals.

If you are a trainee or apprentice and you have signed a training agreement your employer will have a contact at TasTAFE for you in relation to your enrolment.

What is meant by a suitability process?

A suitability process refers to the steps that may be undertaken to determine the match of potential students for the vocational course area and qualification level that you are interested in.  This does not apply to trainees and apprentices.

The objective is to ensure a full understanding of the vocational area of study, its application in the workplace, and the qualification level of study agreed, so that your study opportunities are maximised in terms of being able to meet the learning outcomes within the delivery period of the program.

The suitability process will be based on information drawn from relevant training packages, industry specific requirements, and taking into account any previous work and training experiences, life experience, any other relevant evidence provided by you and any additional criteria which may indicate successful completion of the course. It may include an interview or other processes.
