The benefits of the TAFE NSW TAE Scholarship Program
At TAFE NSW, we’re looking for more teachers in areas where there’s a skills shortage. That’s why we’ve launched the TAFE NSW Training and Assessment (TAE) Scholarship Program.
This NSW Government funded initiative helps people achieve the mandatory teaching qualification with no course fee, while supported by an experienced TAFE NSW teacher.
Becoming a teacher
There are a number of options available for becoming a teacher at TAFE NSW through the TAE Scholarship Program:
1. Start teaching now
Complete a skillset course in four to six weeks of part time study, then you’ll be able to teach on a casual basis under the supervision of an experienced teacher.
During this time, you’ll complete a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. This takes about 12 months, after which you can teach unsupervised.
2. Plan to teach in the future
You can choose to complete a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment while remaining in your current employment. Then you can move into a teaching arrangement that best suits you.
3. Pathway to teaching
Start working at TAFE NSW in a non-teaching educational role, while studying towards a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Once qualified, you can move into a teaching position straight away.
