Targeted wrap-around services for under 17 year olds at TAFE NSW
In partnership with the EPPP, TAFE NSW is providing extra support and services for young people aged under 17 years old who have decided that they want to pursue vocational education full time at TAFE NSW.
Younger students who leave school before Year 12 may find it difficult to adapt to the adult learning environment at TAFE NSW, putting them at them at risk of discontinuing their studies.
The Targeted ‘wrap-around services’ for under 17-year-olds at TAFE NSW initiative provides students with a supported transition between school to TAFE NSW, helping them adapt to the adult learning environment and hit the ground running in their chosen course.
The suite of support includes: regular check-ins with their Student Support Officer; financial support for transport; study materials or a computer to address barriers to learning; and access to support services such as career counselling, Aboriginal or disability student support.
