DISTANCE LEARNING

In today’s busy world, learners are looking for more flexible ways to learn new skills. Advances in technology allow learners to access high quality and engaging learning materials in the comfort of their own home. Learners can choose to study by distance for various reasons such as work and family commitments, living in regional areas or simply being time poor.

Learners still have access to high quality support services including tutorials, workshops, webinars, phone and email support as well as regular contact from their trainer. The online portal contains a range of resources such as learner guides, videos, activities, free short courses and webinars.

CLASS BASED LEARNING

Class based learning is a popular study mode and is great for students who have not studied for a long period of time, who live closer to the training location or who simply enjoy being in class. We always recommend enrolling in a class based mode where possible as students who attend classes are typically more successful. In today’s busy world, learners are looking for more flexible ways to learn new skills.

Advances in technology allow learners to access high quality and engaging learning materials in the comfort of their own home.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

RPL or Recognition of Prior Learning is a way for students to have their existing skills and knowledge recognised. RPL is generally quicker, easier and cheaper. Generally this means that there is no training involved – students go straight to demonstrating competence and are not ‘taught’ anything by the assessor.

For example, Sarah has worked as an teacher aide for 6 years and enrols in the CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support by RPL. Sarah is a good candidate for RPL as she probably already knows everything from the course due to her previous experience and training. The time to complete RPL can vary and is generally completed over a period of time (a few hours per week for example).

As part of your RPL program, your assessor will need to collect evidence showing that you are competent (we can’t just read a resume and hand out a certificate). Your assessor will need to speak to one or more supervisors or colleagues as well as ask them to complete a Third Party Report.

REGISTRATION

Fast Track Training Australia is a Registered Training Organisation (52215). This means that we are audited by the federal government against the Standards for RTOs 2015, and are required to provide a high level of service, support and curriculum.

TOP 5 FAQs

Do I need to find a placement?
All students are required to complete a work placement. FTTA can organise a placement for you however as we have many students to find placements for, you may not end up in your ideal location. Students may approach a local workplace of their preference and ask if a place is available. Many students have someone in their circle of friends, family and acquaintances who may be able to assist. FTTA will then ensure the workplace is suitable and discuss the requirements with the school or child care centre. More information is provided after enrolment.

Can I do a placement at my child’s school or service?
You may do a placement in a school where your child attends, however it is standard practice to not be in the same room. Generally, it is not recommended that you complete a placement in the same child care service although this is allowable under certain circumstances.

What is the difference between Certificate III & IV in Education Support?
The Certificate III is the entry level qualification. It covers all of the basic topics of working as a teacher assistant. The Certificate IV is a higher level and more specialized course which covers most of the topics in the Certificate III as well as having a heavier emphasis on working with children with special needs or in special programs. Teacher assistants who work with special needs may be paid a higher salary.

Do I receive a hardcopy of the learner materials? Yes – you can request the hardcopy of your course materials (excluding RPL enrolments) and complete your assessments with pen and paper. Note that all students will need access to a computer on a regular basis in order to complete learning and assessment activities such as viewing lectures.

QLD government funding – Am I eligible?
There are strict rules set down by the government that determines who is eligible for subsidized fees. You can read the information provided under the fee’s tab of each course or speak to an FTTA student adviser about your situation. Students must live in Queensland. Generally speaking, students cannot have completed a qualification at the same or higher level as the qualification being applied for.
