The Learning Collaborative (TLC) offers a number of different courses through online, face-to-face and mixed modes of study. If you are thinking of gaining a qualification to improve your job prospects or to change career we offer qualifications, Statements of Attainment (SOAs) and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) – all through independent study or Traineeship/ Apprenticeship pathways.

Modes of study

There are two (2) modes of study which cater to different styles of learning:

(1) Our face-to-face training options offer Industry professional trainers with on-site assistance to help you complete your course. We recommend this mode of study for learners who thrive in a group learning environment and would feel more motivated and supported to study in that setting; and

(2) Our online courses are self-directed courses aimed at flexible learners with busy schedules and some previous experience in their chosen field. We recommend online courses to students who are well organised, self-directed and do not need constant guidance and interaction with others.

Funding for courses

You may be eligible for Government funding assistance for your chosen course if you meet the Eligibility Criteria for a Government-funded program.

Certificate 3 Guarantee Eligibility:
