We acknowledge that everyone is different, and because of this, everyone learns in different ways.
To help you meet your individual learning needs and achieve your education and training goals, many of our courses offer a range of learning options that may help you to fit your learning in around work, family and other commitments.
Some courses may have the flexibility for you to study campus, through open learning, online, in a classroom or workshop, in a workplace or a combination of these options. You may wish to study full-time, part-time or take advantage of some of our evening classes.
Although there are some courses you need to do before progressing on to the next level, or certain levels of literacy or numeracy that are required for you to enrol in some courses, we have a range of support services, programs and short courses to get you up to speed.
TasTAFE is open all year-round, with courses starting at different times so you can access the kind of learning you need, when you need it.
Online training programs are designed to give you and employers the opportunity to update skills and achieve qualifications or licence requirements without the need for formal classroom participation.
eLearning is an online pathway to flexible, nationally recognised qualifications. Many of our courses are part of on an online virtual learning environment that is used for eLearning.
Teachers can add tools such as discussion boards and live chat, along with content including documents and web pages to provide students with the information they need to learn outside of the traditional campus setting.
TasTAFE provides a range of training options to people living in rural and remote areas across Tasmania. Programs offered are based on employer and student demand and can range from learning offered in the workplace to individuals, to classes or groups.
TasTAFE also has partnering agreements in a number of regional areas to provide training for Tasmanians living in rural and remote communities. The programs on offer will vary in each area according to need and demand.
In addition to face-to-face delivery, flexible learning options may also be available through distance or online study.
Local support is available in many cases to assist students who are undertaking flexible learning.
