Residents of Mackay and areas around Mackay now have access to Australia’s most popular teacher aide course including the cost-effective teacher aide combo (not government subsidised) that gives you double the firepower when applying for work. Students can also apply for the government subsidised, introductory course CHC30221 Certificate III in School Based Education Support, or the more advanced but achievable CHC40221 Certificate IV in School Based Education Support, which is becoming more and more popular as students want to hold the highest qualification available.


All courses include a mandatory placement in a local school such as Alligator Creek State School, which opened in 1896, or Mackay North State School. You can usually complete your placement in a school close to where you live (subject to school approval) particularly if you already know someone working at the school. The placement is an opportunity for you to practise the things you have learnt in the theory part of your course, such as behaviour management techniques, teaching and learning strategies, and other general classroom activities that support students and the teacher.
