Education Support a Pathway to Teaching
GippsTAFE has developed a pathway for students undertaking a qualification in Education Support that caters for people who haven’t necessarily completed formal secondary qualifications. Completion of the TAFE Diploma allows students to progress to a degree in primary education at Monash University.
Learners are interviewed to determine the level that they should begin their training; Certificate IV or Diploma.
Current training is delivered using paper based workbooks. Trainers at GippsTAFE are keen to develop a more engaging model of delivery with an emphasis on online community.
The program will use innovative technologies such as e-portfolios, mobile technologies, online discussion and reflective blogs. Learners are required to be involved in the industry to participate in this training to ensure they have opportunities to observe and participate in current work practices.
The use of mobile technologies will readily allow learners to document and reflect on their experiences as they undertake their learning.
