Teacher aide courses from the Sunshine Coast

Australia’s most popular government subsidised teacher aide courses are now available on the Sunshine Coast from $50

Begin your new journey by enrolling in Australia’s most popular teacher aide course with the country’s leading provider: Institute of Teacher Aide Courses. With current government subsidised places from $50 (for concession students) or $100 (for standard non-concessional students), now is the time to enrol in a nationally recognised teacher aide qualification from the Sunshine Coast. These programs are funded by the Queensland Government under programs such as the Certificate 3 Guarantee and the Higher Level Skills program and are only available to a small number of approved providers such as ITAC.

ITAC offer 3 different teacher aide courses for residents of the Sunshine Coast and surrounding areas, all by distance learning with unlimited support from our expert, friendly trainers who are only a phone call or email away:

Students who enrol in a teacher aide course from the Sunshine Coast complete their course by distance learning. This involves accessing our high quality, research based, industry leading materials and resources via our student learning portal: easy to use, simple, user-friendly – making learning and studying easier. Don’t think however that distance study means you don’t have face to face contact. We offer regular tutorials in Brisbane (if you can make it), visit every student on their placement, and offer regular live webinars so students can see and speak with their trainer as well as interact with fellow students who are in the same boat. We go to great lengths to ensure that we offer as much support as needed to help you achieve your learning goals.

You can learn more about studying one of our teacher aide courses from the Sunshine Coast by reading this article: Teacher aide courses online: is it right for me? All students are required to undertake a 100-hour work placement which is completed in a local school. Luckily there are plenty of options on the Sunshine coast and you may end up completing your placement in a kindergarten, primary school, high school, special needs schools or even an alternative school. You can learn about the schools available in the local area at this government school database, this national database or by searching the web for schools on the Sunshine Coast.

ITAC’s courses are popular due to the fact that our students learn and study the most effective, best practice strategies, skills and techniques that other providers quite often don’t offer (and may not even know about). For example, among other things, our students learn these vital skills:

  • questioning and feedback techniques,
  • rapport building and non-verbal communication,
  • behaviour management techniques,
  • metacognitive skills, copying skills and study skills,
  • traditional as well as modern teaching and learning strategies,
  • student-centred and teacher-centred approaches,
  • one-on-one instruction, pair and group work,
  • explicit instruction, scaffolding and worked examples,
  • discovery and play based learning, and
  • many others.

While many providers teach one or two of these vital skills, our students learn dozens – and then some. Another reason why our students are so sought after – they have the highest level of ‘pedagogical knowledge’ and therefore have the ability to make the biggest difference to the learning and development of students in their class. They are also invaluable resources that teachers can deploy for strategic reasons such as identifying and targeting gaps in student learning. This can lead to immediate remedial or intervention strategies which means employing an array of effective reading and writing strategies to prevent the student’s learning issue from deteriorating further. To get the best chance of finding your perfect teacher aide job on the Sunshine Coast – enrol with a reputable provider and maximise your effectiveness and usefulness.

You can learn more about what to expect in your course and what teacher aides do day to day by reading any one of our blogs such as:

Did you know? More national parks are located around the Sunshine Coast than any other region of Queensland. A growing number of schools also call the region home with over 50 primary schools and high schools currently open. Each of these schools demand skilled and qualified teacher aide staff. You may consider completing your teacher aide course placement in local Sunshine Coast schools such as Matthew Flinders Anglican College, Sunshine Beach State School, or Caloundra Christian College, just to name a few – there are plenty of schools to choose from.

If you are interested in a career that brings new challenges every day, then a nationally recognised teacher aide course on the Sunshine Coast, delivered by an approved provider with subsidised fees, is the right qualification for you.
