Career development from afar
As a scholar with the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health, Georgie completed a Certificate III in Dental Assisting. Meanwhile, she was also completing a Certificate IV in Dental Assisting (Oral Health Promotion) online with TAFE Digital.
Georgie says that working in the dental industry at the same time as studying was a benefit. It allowed her to apply what she was learning, put her knowledge to the test and refine it. She was always able to log onto the student system when it suited her lifestyle.
“I appreciate my time studying with TAFE Digital and would recommend online studying to anyone who has prior commitments that don’t allow them to study full-time,” she says.
There is no surprise then that she was honoured at the 2018 TAFE NSW Excellence Awards: Student of the Year and Equity and Youth Achievement Awards. She was described as a dedicated and hard-working student, and great role model for her family, friends and local community.

Making online study work for you
How do you fit online study into an already-full schedule?
TAFE NSW Counsellors give some tips.
Online study requires time-management and good organisation, and some computer skills and support. The TAFE Digital website provides a checklist of what is recommended. Feel free to chat with a TAFE Digital Counsellor.
When you study with TAFE Digital you can be anywhere, except alone. You can get support from teachers, as well as other TAFE NSW services such as Counselling and Career Development Services, Disability Support Staff and the Aboriginal Education Training Unit (AETU). Most services available at a TAFE NSW ‘campus’ are also available for online students.
You may even be able to do a short, free ‘Taster’ course at TAFE Digital to see if online study suits you.
Once you’re enrolled, there is ongoing support. There are even virtual classrooms and connect sessions so that you can engage with teachers and other online students.
