56 >AustrAliAn EducAtion 2012 ‘Private colleges keep up with changes in market forces across all industries and reflect these in their curriculum.’ Charles Darwin University is a multi- sector university in the Northern Territory offering vocational, university and English language courses. It has mapped flexible pathways from vocational courses to bachelor degrees. For students to gain practical experience in their fields of study, it has a training restaurant in Palmerston, a training restaurant in Alice Springs, a hair salon and a beauty salon. TAFE institutes have exceptional training facilities, enabling students to gain practical hands-on experience in commercial businesses and access the latest computers and facilities to help research and prepare their assignments. privAte colleges Australia has hundreds of private vocational colleges across the country in both large cities and regional towns. Private colleges tend to be smaller than the government-owned institutes. Private colleges can be divided into those which offer a range of courses and those that focus on specific industries such as hospitality, music, design, photography, alternate therapies, hairdressing and beauty. The teachers in vocational institutes are experienced in the industry and share their work-related knowledge. You’ll learn on the equipment which is used within the industry, gaining work-ready skills. For example, if you are studying a commercial cookery course, you will be working in a fully equipped training kitchen on industry-standard equipment. Some hospitality courses have on-site cafés so that students can practise their skills in a real-life work situation. In other fields, such as fashion, media and childcare, students may do work placements in local companies as part of their course. Private colleges keep up with changes in market forces across all industries and are quick to reflect such developments in their curriculum. They have close industry ties and an outcomes-driven approach which means increased job opportunities for graduates from private colleges. Many private colleges are members of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET). Private colleges offer accredited courses across a wide range of industries, including niche courses targeted to specific industry needs, such as aviation training for pilots. When you choose a vocational provider in Australia, you know that each institute and college must meet the same high standards set by government. There are many options for you to find the right course in the right location to meet your personal and professional goals. ● >Find out morE private colleges Australian Council for Private Education and Training www.acpet.edu.au government-owned institutes TAFE Victoria www.studymelbourne. vic.gov.au/studying_in_ melbourne/vocational TAFE New South Wales www.tafensw.edu.au TAFE South Australia www.tafesa.edu.au TAFE Queensland www.tafe.qld.gov.au/ TAFE Western Australia www.eti.wa.edu.au/ Tasmania www.polytechnic.tas. edu.au Australian Capital Territory http://cit.edu.au Northern Territory www.cdu.edu.au Above: Students learn on the equipment that is used in the industry.
