Intended Audience: The course is directed at current Teacher's Assistants supporting children with a disability

TasTAFE's Disability team have an exciting initiative available, whereby we are able to offer heavily subsidised training (in the Nationally Accredited Certificate III Disability) to Teacher's Assistants (and VETSAs). This training will have a particular focus on working with children/young people, and will include strategies for working in an integration/inclusion framework, working with behaviours of concern, and working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

The program will be workplace based, with a fortnightly workshop at TasTAFE. Staff who have existing qualifications will be offered opportunities for Credit Transfers and Recognition.
