Student Support

We're here for you!

TAFE Queensland East Coast Student Support team are here to support you through your studies to give you the best chance of success.

We are with you every step of the way, from helping you choose the right course for you, extra tuition, guidance with your studies and assignments and transition from study to work - we're here to help you!

Student Support

  • Getting started. Whether you are wanting to change careers, upskill or start a career, we can help you pick the right course to get you where you want to be.
  • From study to work. We can support you with tips on job search strategies, creating a professional resume, providing information on answering selection criteria and preparing for interviews.
  • Additional support. Study, family, work- sometimes it all gets too much. We can help you work out a balance, reduce study loads or create a study timetable to find the right fit.
  • Exceptional circumstances. Sometimes stress can impact your studies. Relationship breakdowns, moving house, financial strains can all effect your time at TAFE. We can help you plan how to get back on track with study and help you find additional support in the community.
  • Disability Support. We encourage you to discuss your study needs with us before enrolment or, if you are already enrolled, as soon as possible. We will work with you to develop an individual support plan which may include the loan of assistive technology.
