Being a teacher’s aide is not just supporting the teacher in their teachings, but also assisting the children in their learning.
This course focuses on support for students with learning difficulties and special needs. To enhance your learning experience this course requires you to do 120 hours of hands on placement, in an approved education environment. Some students may apply to be exempt of these hours if they already work in the industry.
While it is generally preferred that participants complete the Certificate III in Education Support first, those with experience or a previous qualification in education or working with children may request direct entry into the Certificate IV.

This course is delivered by our blended program. Workbooks and assessment are delivered to you in electronic format via email. You do not need to come to class, however, you will need to keep in contact with your Educator and attend phone and/or web meetings to complete some of the practical components of your course. Blended learning allows you the flexibility of completing your course at your own pace, at times to suit work and other life commitments. You can work on your course at anytime, anywhere supported by your industry experienced Educator via telephone and email communication no matter where you are.
Distance learning allows you to have the same amount of convenience and flexibility as online or blended learning. The only difference is that instead of studying online, you will be studying via workbooks. Distance learning is perfect for students that prefer to have hard copy resources. Participants wishing to complete their qualification via distance instead of online will incur additional material and postage fees up to the value of $25.00 per unit.
If you have lots of experience and skills but no formal qualification you might want to consider Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is a process whereby you demonstrate that you currently have the required skills and knowledge for particular units/qualifications within the industry that you are experienced. RPL focuses on your life and work experiences and how they meet the criteria of the national qualifications to find out more about RPL contact us and one of our course advisors will contact you to discuss the RPL process.
Exceptional Value, Flexible Payment and Support you can count on.
