Program Description

This Program is specifically designed to support the growth and development of Teachers Assistants by providing a clear pathway to study a Certificate III in Education Support (CHC30213). This qualification course is delivered in partnership with TasTAFE as the Education Support Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Program 2022.

This is an in-service study pathway that commences in February 2022 (beginning of Term 1) with the aim to complete the qualification by December 2022. The evidences of practice are gathered and assessed over four school terms.

Successful completion of the course provides a pathway to a Diploma in Education Support. The Diploma qualification provides Teachers Assistants with career opportunities as Education Support Specialists (ESS) in the Department.

Participating Teachers Assistants are supported by the Department while they undertake the coursework required. This includes fees and any specific training days.
