Short courses

We deliver a wide range of short courses for you to enhance your professional skills or personal development. See the college's offerings of short courses at your local campus.

Business skills

To start and grow a business enterprise, people need to be skilled, capable and experienced in many areas. When their business expands, they must respond quickly to market movements. Business owners can't always bring in staff with the necessary skills and knowledge to train a lot of people, mainly self-employed, to run small businesses.

In a fast moving world, managing a small business requires a rounded knowledge. Many business operators are highly skilled or qualified in the technical side of their business, but simply don't have the time to attend normal training in business management

Our programs will enhance your understanding of all facets of business and are designed for owners/managers or entrepreneurs looking to establish and grow their business.

Career change

As a career changer, what careers are open to you? With courses from the South Regional TAFE you can explore skills and knowledge in career fields similar to your present one, or experiment with courses relating to very different careers.

Re-entering the workforce

Taking a NOW, WOW or GATE course at South Regional TAFE can be your stepping stone back into the workforce. If you've been away from the workforce for a while, you might want to enrol in a course to help you build your vocational skills and demonstrate to potential employers your self-motivation and ability to commit to activities.

(WOW)            Wider Opportunities for Work

Be recognised for skills you already have

Did you know you might be able to receive a qualification without going through formal training?

If you have existing skills, knowledge and experience but not a formal qualification, then Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) may an option for you.

Skills recognition of your experience may help you get that qualification you always wanted; improve your career prospects; gain a nationally recognised qualification in a shorter period of time by not learning what you already know; and provide a pathway to higher education and university.​
