Whether you are returning to study after a long break, building on the skills you already have, or entering further education for the first time, TasTAFE provides a range of services to ensure that you are supported throughout your study.
Study support sessions
If you believe that your reading, writing, maths, computer or study skills may present a barrier to you completing your qualification, contact your teacher and ask for a referral to the Vocational Preparation team. Support will be provided by specialist teachers either in small groups or in-class.
If you are an apprentice or trainee completing your studies in the workplace, and need some extra help, support is also available through TasTAFE. Please discuss your needs with your teacher and they will contact the support team so that you have the best chance of completing your apprenticeship/traineeship.
*To ensure you still have access to the support you need while you are studying online, study support sessions can now be undertaken by phone or online via videoconferencing. Submit your request for learning assistance/study support today via StudentConnect: www.tastafe.tas.edu.au/connect.
Drop in study sessions
Drop in study support sessions are available at all major campus libraries across the state.
These sessions are available for students studying any course, and involve bringing your class work or assessment work to the drop in study session to discuss with the support teacher. This option is ideal if you need individual assistance.
There will be posters around your campus advertising what days and times these sessions are available, or you can just call in and ask your local library staff for more information.
Small group study sessions
Small group study sessions can be organised where there is a common issue for a specific group of students, such as specific maths tutoring in areas of higher numeracy requirement in some trades, or clinical aspects of Enrolled Nursing.
Please discuss what support you need with your teacher or support teacher.
If you need help to develop your skills and increase your career options, TasTAFE has a wide range of vocational preparation programs on offer, on campus, online and in the community.
These courses are designed to help you develop your skills or work out your career options, and can also include introductory courses such as work experience placements to give you a ‘taste’ of different careers. Find out more about our vocational preparation programs.
