Online delivery mode information

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. 

Online is a little different to on-campus study as you do not have face to face contact with your lecturers and you do not engage directly with fellow students during every-day class activities. If on-campus study is not your preference, then online study is a great option. Rest assured you will be supported by your online lecturers.
You will also have access to lecturers via your online dashboard. The lecturers will help to clarify your concerns, assist with the course content, mark your assessments and provide you with feedback if required

Qualifications are broken down into stages with an intensive practical skills workshop run at the end of each stage. You will only need to enrol and pay for one stage at a time.

A Work Placement is compulsory for students undertaking a Certificate IV or Diploma as some units in these qualifications require you to demonstrate your skills in a work place setting. These units will be highlighted on your study plan.

To enquire or enrol please fill out the Course Enquiry Form
Employer-based delivery mode information

Employer-based training offers a flexible, self-paced study program which combines workplace recognition of prior learning and individualised ‘gap’ training to attain your qualification.

This means every time you go to work you are learning and demonstrating competence whilst working towards your qualification. The flexibility of Employer-based training allows you to structure and perform learning and assessment in a way that fits into your professional and personal life.

Learning and assessment plans are created on an individual level in consultation with you and/or your employer. Assessment is conducted using numerous methods including practical demonstration and observation, question and answer interviews, written tasks, supervisor reports and workshops.
