ITAC offers 2 government funded teacher aide courses for people living in the greater Townsville area in North QLD. Which course you choose is completely up to you, however, some courses may suit certain people more, depending on their goals and aspirations – the choice is completely up to you. The CHC30221 Certificate III in School Based Education Support is the basic introductory course which will enable you to work effectively as a teacher aide in a mainstream Townsville schools such as those listed below just to name a few:
On the other hand, the CHC40221 Certificate IV in School Based Education Support will equip you with the professional skills required to effectively support teachers and students and in particular special needs schools such as Townsville Community Learning Centre. However, the best part of holding the higher level teacher aide course is that you can work in any school – as you have the highest qualification available for teacher aides, you are eligible for all support positions and will have a better chance of being employed than those who hold the lower level CHC30221 Certificate III in School Based Education Support.
Finally, we offer the teacher aide combo, however as this course is not funded in Queensland, it is not as popular as it is in other states. This course combines both the CHC30221 Certificate III in School Based Education Support and the CHC40221 Certificate IV in School Based Education Support and is popular in QLD for students who are not eligible for government funding such as people on certain visas and those who have completed higher level courses such as a child care diploma.
How long it takes to do one of our teacher aide courses is largely up to you. It depends on factors such as any experience you’ve had with children (even as a parent) and how much time you can commit to study each week. Our courses are all delivered in a self-paced, distance-learning mode to students enrolled in a teacher aide course in Townsville. That means you can study as much or as little as you like, depending on your other commitments and how quickly you want to complete your teacher aide course to start working in one of your local Townsville schools.
On average, an ITAC teacher aide course from Townsville takes around 600 hours to complete, though you may be able to complete it quicker if you have relevant background knowledge, skills or school experience (including experience with children in any capacity, childcare, aged care or have studied at this level or higher in the past).
