Koorie support

A large number of Aboriginal students choose to study with us and we provide specialist support to assist them to successfully complete their course. We also liaise with local communities to provide customised courses and services.

Our Koorie Student Support Officers are available to support our Koorie students by developing specific education and training programs to suit individual needs. The Koorie Student Support Officers will assist you to transition into SWTAFE and help you find your way around campus.

Koorie Student Support Officers service all campuses and are available to assist with:

  • Support in the enrolment process.
  • Information about fee payments and concessions.
  • Choosing the right course to help you work towards your career choice.
  • Essay and assignment writing and learning basic computer skills.
  • Referrals to other support agencies.

Our course information and advice services are available to all current and prospective students. Groups or individuals who require information sessions for course information should also contact the education pathway team for further information.

We also have Koorie Liaison Officers who provide cultural awareness training to staff during induction so that all staff are aware of the customs and history of our local people.
