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.

Get Involved in Learning Week:

Online Presentations

Connect with our online Presentations

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. 

Build good study skills and habits

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.   

Let's Get Digital - improve your skills in computers & online environments

Need some help to improve your skills in computers and online environments, to prepare for your training? 

Let's Get Digital is a one-day course designed for students who are enrolling or are enrolled in TAFE SA vocational courses.

All students must register for the course by email.

More information is available in the 'Let's Get Digital' flyer:     TAFESA_LetsGetDigital T1 2021  

Get help from a "bridging unit" for reading, writing or numeracy 

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.

Everyday technology can support your study

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.

Need Academic Help?

Studiosity is an online academic tutoring service which provides individualised tutoring and guidance to students across all areas of your study. 

Subject specialists are available to help you with a range of topics.  And best of all, it is free for TAFE SA students. 

Watch our short video 'Studiosity In A Nutshell' for more information, and how to connect.  When you want to access help, just log into TAFE SA Learn, and the Studiosity Link will be visible to you on the Learn homepage. 

Need a job quickly? A short course may help

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.

 

Getting Help

Concerned about personal issues which may affect your study? Worried about your career direction and want support?  Do you have a disability or learning condition affecting your study? Need extra help to connect with our library resources or online systems? 

Visit the Getting Help section of the Student Website to explore the range of great support services available while you study with TAFE SA.  

Enhance your learning with professional skills

Wanting to develop extra skills for your professional career? 

Hoping to improve your confidence with reading or speaking in English (if it is your second language)? 

Our Languages and Professional Development short courses can help you get a headstart in your career. 

Vocational Training

Want to learn more about the VET Sector? 

Vocational Education & Training (VET) is designed to deliver workplace-specific skills and knowledge-based competencies to individuals seeking qualification for employment.  

You can learn more about the VET sector, including the regulations, structure of qualifications, assessment process, and RPL on the Student Orientation and Support Learn Course.
