How it Works
Whether you are seeking part-time or full-time work, a work placement while completing your studies, or are looking to secure your first graduate position, the TAFE Queensland + Successful Graduate Programs have been carefully tailored to help you to secure employment.
You will hone your professional skills, be better prepared for the graduate employment market and access tailored graduate employment training resources that are designed to help you be successful in today’s competitive graduate job market.
The TAFE Queensland Job Readiness Program consists of 10 online modules in total, with 4 – 5 units per module. You can take the course on any device at your own pace.
Each module is designed to help you prepare the actual building blocks for your job application process, from learning about who you are, to your very first day in your new job.
Through-out each module there are videos, ‘actions for success’, case studies and ‘reality checks’.
At the end of each module, there are key module take-outs and a quiz to ensure you have grasped the content.
Our additional Programs include the TAFE Queensland WIL Preparation Program and the TAFE Queensland High School Graduate Program. All Programs use similar methodologies, and our targeted content is written by Australian professional career counsellors.
The TAFE Queensland WIL Preparation Program consists of 8 Modules, each with 3-4 Units of material. If you wish to complete a work placement (ie. a work experience, internship or Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement), this program has been specifically designed to teach you how to research, apply for and complete the placement. It also teaches you how to transfer your placement experience to the job market, so you can make sure you gain as much as you can from the experience.
The TAFE Queensland High School Graduate Program consists of 5 Modules, each with between 3-6 Units of material. The Program has been designed by professional Australian high school careers counsellors to help Years 11 and 12 students to navigate the tricky decision-making process related to their lives after school. You will explore which career fields are most relevant for you, and investigate post-school options such as further study, apprenticeships or immediate employment. By using our Employment Problem Solving and Decision Making Model, you will be complete this Program with knowledge about which industries are offering jobs, how to apply for work, how to research and enrol in further study and how to conduct a job interview.
