In Learning Week, TAFE SA students will be able to participate to gain knowledge and experience in using the various TAFE SA online learning tools available to them during their studies. These sessions will promote active learning and participation including Q&A. There will be live presentations, educational videos, and online workshops to access.
Learning week is also a great time to learn more about building your skills and good habits to become a successful student and get the most out of your training opportunities.
During the Orientation Program, a range of online workshops will be available to help you get started with your TAFE SA studies. Check out our latest events below. The full list of upcoming events is available here.
Not available at the time an event is running? Starting your course outside of our four stage Orientation Program? Don't worry! A recorded copy of our presentations will be available for enrolled students to view anytime on the the Student Orientation and Support Learn Course.
There is more to being a student than just showing up. Good study skills and habits can be developed during your training which will help you achieve success at TAFE and in the workforce. Skills like good communication, planning/organising, self-management, and teamwork are some of the 'soft skills' that are highly valued by employers.
You can learn more about building good skills and habits on the Student Orientation & Support Learn Course, reading the range of news items below, and through our live presentations. This week's presentation schedule will highlight 'Back to Basics' of being prepared and organised for study, as well as 'Making the most of your study' which highlights the skills you can practise now to prepare you for work.
Bridging units are classes to help you develop extra skills in reading, writing or numeracy, which can assist you to be successful with your qualification. Your CSPA results will identify if bridging units may assist you, and you may be booked in for bridging unit classes with our Foundation Skills program.
If you are not enrolled in bridging units, but feel that it would be useful for you to get some extra help, speak to your lecturer who can organise a bridging unit referral for you. You can learn more about the help you can get through Foundation Skills in this short video.
Did you know that a lot of the technology we use everyday has extra features that can support you while you are studying? Some Microsoft software programs (like word and outlook) can convert text to speech, so you can hear what is written on the page. It can also convert speech to text, which will allow you to use a dictate function when writing notes.
For information about apps and software that can support your study, check out our Study App news item.
Did you know that not all jobs need a full qualification? Sometimes, the right combination of industry skills and personal attributes can open the door to casual work to support you while you study further?
Consider our short courses in Hospitality Short Courses to learn coffee-making and bartending, or learn business and finance skills from our Business Short Courses.
And remember to get support from our Career Services for help with your Resume and job hunting.
