All Vocational Education & Training course information can be found at the above menu 'Study At Tabor', then 'Vocational Education & Training (VET)'.
Vocational Education courses are generally much shorter than degree level programs. They are directly targeted at specific occupations and provide a great pathway to employment. Tabor also has links with many employers who are keen to employ Tabor Graduates. Research shows that a very high percentage of VET graduates in SA gain employment on completion of their courses.
If you are a private student visit the SA Government Skills For All website to check if you are eligible for subsidised training. Tabor Adelaide is a Skills for All Provider.

There is no FEE Help available for Tabor VET programs. This can be a positive, as after your study is completed and you start work, there will be no FEE Help debt being deducted from your wages! It does mean that you need to fund the study as you go. As VET courses do not require full time face to face instruction, part time work is possible to assist you in funding your program.
There are also funding sources which you may be able to draw upon to assist you with your course fees. Some are listed here including Traineeship information.
Employees may attract a $4000 Government Traineeship grant for their employers. See information provided in link above.
All of our courses are approved for these allowances. However you need to study at least a ¾ work-load to be eligible. Contact your local Centrelink to discuss your eligibility.
Experienced workers/volunteers are eligible for RPL. We provide a positive and proactive approach to RPL. We discuss your experience and knowledge with you informally. If RPL is gained this leads to less study time for you and enables you to reach your goals faster. In some courses this can lead to a reduction in fees.
Online - Study using our Moodle learning system. Moodle resources include: online student workbooks, recorded lectures, discussion forums with other students and your lecturer and an easy upload of assignment work. With this option you can study at a time and place which suits you and also move as quickly as you like through the course. This is suitable for students living outside of Adelaide metro area and students restricted by their commitments. You can email or phone your lecturer at any time for additional assistance.
Class room based sessions - This option is for people who prefer to learn in groups and work with the lecturer in person. We hold our classes mainly in the evening to allow as many people as possible to access them. You will also receive online resources to assist your learning if you study this way.
Intensives - Intensives are run over several consecutive days. You may be able to cover several units in this manner. You will also receive online resources to assist your learning if you study this way.
