Still at school


For high school students, the TAFE alternative through South Regional TAFE can allow you to gain skills that are relevant to the industry you want to find work in.

Here are five reasons to consider:


1. If you were born on or before 30 June 2002, and are aged between 15 and 17, you may be eligible to enrol in one or more  courses at South Regional TAFE for a capped fee.
In 2017, the capped fee is $420, and if the State Government announces a continuation of the scheme in 2018, it is expected to be at a similar cost.

That’s hundreds of dollars less than older students pay.


2. Study in areas you’re really interested in.

If you study at TAFE, you can concentrate on the industry you want to work in – and our pathways can also get you to university!


3. Use your qualification to find a job – or stay at TAFE and study for a Certificate IV.

Next year, you’ll have a qualification to help you get a better job, or an excellent start towards further study.


4. Students who choose TAFE say they love being treated like an adult, taking responsibility for their own work and leisure time, and enjoying the amazing, modern on-campus facilities.

What’s not to like about that?


5. You can also use TAFE study to get to uni. Some Certificate IV courses can help you gain entry into uni, but if you get your diploma, you even get credit towards your degree.

So you'll finish your degree course much sooner!
