Academic Foundation Skills opportunities

Your Academic Foundation Skills qualifications will offer a range of options for further study at a higher level. The courses have been designed to be undertaken prior to or in conjunction with chosen academic study.

The TAFE NSW Online learning system ‘Canvas’ lets you study wherever and whenever you like all on your laptop, tablet or smartphone

In fact it’s the only program of its kind that is optimised for smartphone. The easy to use interface has all the readings, course notes, videos and support material for each level built in.

Everything is designed to help you stick to your study schedule, pass the course and upgrade to the career of your dreams. There’s a personalised dashboard for tracking your progress, and a diary to help you manage your study around your everyday life. You can set up notifications on email, SMS, Facebook and Twitter. So you’ll always know when an assignment is due, it’ll even chase you up if you forget!

Our Preparing for TAFE Online study short course is designed specifically to help you plan to succeed with your learning online.
