High school students or recently graduated students can do TAFE in preparation for going onto another institution like Federation University, or undertake training courses that will make them immediately employable.

Employees who are already trained can choose to do further training in their area of expertise, either by getting a higher level qualification (like a graduate diploma) or by doing a course in a specific skill area. For example, a receptionist who works in a dentist’s office may do a course in dental assisting so that they can better understand their workplace and colleagues, and even move into dental assisting long term.

Types of courses

There is a range of courses available in Ballarat. Depending on the qualification level, a short course, online course or apprenticeship pathway course/pre-apprenticeship may prepare you to work as soon as you’ve finished your vocational education, or prepare you for further training. The type of course you undertake will be dependent on what you need as well as what the training provider offers. The areas you can study at TAFE are vast, with a huge range of qualifications, covering everything from mental health and community services to building & construction and project management. Just some of the possible courses include:

  • Certificate III in fitness
  • Diploma of Building and Construction (Building)
  • Diploma of Nursing
  • Certificate IV Project Management Practice
  • Introduction to Bookkeeping
  • Advanced Diploma of Accounting
  • Certificate III in individual Support
  • Diploma of Nursing

Plus many more including in relation to childcare, aged care, and apprenticeship courses!

Ballarat Campuses

Many towns like Ballarat, Geelong and Bendigo have courses that are completed in part or entirely online so that you can study and work at the same time, wherever and whenever suits you. Some schools, like Federation university, which do have a campus in the town centre, have agreements with individual training organisations to provide on-campus locations or have individual offices or training spaces rather than an independent campus. 

With the introduction of Training Australia and free TAFE courses, as well as an abundance of online, in-person and blended learning, you can study a course based in Ballarat while living in Brisbane or Western Australia, or live and work in Ballarat while you study your course in person! There are heaps of options available, so get started today by browsing our list of available TAFE courses in Ballarat!
