Making the change online
How do you fit online study into an already-full schedule? TAFE NSW Counsellors give some tips.
Relax. This is a normal concern. Successful online study does require good time-management and organisation skills, and some computer skills and support.
Double check. If you are unsure if you and your situation suits online study, the TAFE Digital website provides a checklist of what is recommended. Feel free to chat with a TAFE Digital Counsellor who specialise in providing support to online students.
Try a taster. Especially if you are looking to change careers, consider a short, free ‘Taster course’ at TAFE Digital. It can let you know if online study suits you. Once you’re enrolled you can be assured of more support from TAFE NSW staff.
Get virtual. There are virtual classrooms and connect sessions so that you can engage with teachers and other online students.
Take support. TAFE Digital students can get support from their teachers, as well as other TAFE NSW support services such as Counselling and Career Development Services, Disability Support Staff, Aboriginal Education Training Unit (AETU). Most services available at a TAFE NSW ‘campus’ are also available for online students.
