At the Institute of Teacher Aide Courses, our industry experienced trainers are on hand to support you towards completing an education support (teacher aide course) in Ballarat, Bendigo and surrounding areas. Enrol by distance (also known as online) learning and access Australia’s best teacher aide training platform. We teach research based, best practice teaching methods, techniques, skills and approaches – that is why our students work in thousands of schools across Australia and are highly sought after.
Students from the Ballarat or Bendigo area can enrol in Australia’s most popular teacher aide courses at the click of a button. We offer courses all across Victoria by distance learning which means students access their learning materials via our user-friendly learner portal. Here students access, view and download webinars, lectures, videos, guides, e-books and complete a range of learning activities designed to develop your pedagogical knowledge (knowledge of teaching and learning).
An ITAC teacher aide course is very different with regards to many other providers – we teach research based, industry relevant, practical skills and techniques that help you to become an essential and invaluable contributor to the classroom in terms of both student learning and development, and in supporting the teacher with the various tasks required to keep a busy classroom functioning. This includes more traditional support skills such as reading and writing techniques, more modern approaches such as motivation techniques and formative assessment, as well as several advanced strategies such as Cognitive Load theory.
A distance course does not mean that you go at it alone. We offer a series of support services to help you become the best teacher aide that your local school has ever seen. This includes regular phone and email conversations, visits to help and guide your development when you are on placement (there is a 100-hour mandatory placement), and regular live webinars so you can interact with trainers and your fellow students. You can easily see why our completion rate is 3x that of other providers according to NCVER data: we don’t skimp on support or cut corners.
