TAFE stands for Technical and Further Education.
It’s a government-run system that provides education after high school in vocational areas, like beauty, design, childcare, accounting, business, recruitment, IT, and many more. While university teaches a broad range of theories, TAFE focuses on specific skills for a particular workplace.
There are many TAFE WA campuses all over the state. South Regional TAFE has 12 campuses – visit https://www.southregionaltafe.wa.edu.au/campuses to see each location.
Each qualification has different rules for attendance and participation. Generally, you will need to attend class in some form: online, face-to-face, in a workplace, or as directed by your lecturer.
In order to be deemed competent in your chosen course, you will be assessed in the skills and knowledge from each unit.
Some courses may be non-assessable, and no grades will be given. Please check with the lecturer for full details.
