Engage your passion for working with children and supporting their individual needs

The Certificate IV in Education Support will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge to assist the teaching staff in schools and provide care, instruction and supervision in kindergarten, pre-primary, primary and secondary school.

This course is also available through two online study modes, online structured and online self-paced, see the Important information tab below for details. Online is a little different to on-campus study as you do not have face to face contact with your lecturers. If on-campus study is not your preference, then online study is a great option. You will still be supported by your online lecturers. With online study you will be completing your course via an online platform which contains all your study material and assessments. You will be provided a login and password to access this material once you have been enrolled at North Metropolitan TAFE.

No matter how you choose to study, as part of this qualification you will need to undertake a supervised work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned in a classroom setting.
