When you study with TAFE NSW, we want you to succeed. Entry requirements allow us to make sure that you have the right pre-existing knowledge and skills to achieve your chosen qualification. You will need to provide evidence that you meet the requirements listed in this section.

To make sure this is the appropriate course level for you, you will need to participate in a phone interview with one of our teaching staff.

Work placement provides you with opportunities to practise responding to situations and circumstances that cannot be replicated in a learning or simulated environment.

You may complete your placement in an environment that interests you. Your teacher will prepare you for the work environment and support you to find the placement and undertake the work activities.
