WHY STUDY AT RANDWICK TAFE


  • Randwick TAFE and Sydney Institute offer nationally recognised qualifications at different levels and value for money considering what you are going to learn
  • All TAFE courses are designed to get you job ready. TAFE works closely with industry and government organisations via the Industry Skills Council (ISC) and ATO to ensure high quality training in delivering courses that are relevant, current and practical
  • We know that online studying is not for everyone. If you are one of those students that want face to face teaching, important points highlighted, queries or problems resolved in class, prefer to attend classes at a set time, prefer teachers to point out what you need for an assessment or what to study when you can’t attend a class and like the idea of sharing notes and discussing problems with other students then think about doing our courses.
  • Good teachers can make complex subjects easy to understand. At Randwick, we pride ourselves on having teachers that are very helpful, care about your learning and have worked in the industry as accountants, lawyers, auditors, MYOB consultants, etc.
  • Small class sizes (seldom exceeding 25 students) and high quality personal training for better learning outcomes.
  • Teachers are available for personal consultation if required and we do have tutorial and drop in classes for students that need help with certain subjects
  • After reading what is covered in each qualification, you will realise just how much you will learn
  • The classes are a good mix of theory and working through practical workplace scenarios.
  • To help with your family and work commitments, you can mix day and night classes.
  • Great customer service centre, disability unit, library facilities, bookshop, canteen facilities, international student counselor, careers counselor, TVET HSC coordinator, multicultural officer, indigenous liaison officer, etc.
  • Beautiful campus with lots of trees, lovely gardens, plenty of parking (on campus and off campus) and right next to the stunning Centennial Park. We are on a major transport route, right opposite Randwick Racecourse on the corner of Alison Road and Darley Road. By bus, we are about 15 minutes from Central Station or Bondi Junction station.
