Study education support

Our education support courses will qualify you to work as a qualified teacher aide. Teacher aides work under the direction of a teacher to assist children — including those with intellectual, physical, and behavioural difficulties — with their learning outcomes. Whatever your career goals, TAFE Queensland can help you get there.

Demand for teacher aides in Australia is very high with job openings over the next five years expected to be over 50,000. Employers are seeking qualified candidates with strong interpersonal and communication skills who can work well as part of a team.

As part of our education support courses you'll complete a vocational placement, enabling you to gain knowledge and skills in a workplace setting. Our strong relationships with schools from prep through to Year 12 will give you experience across a range of educational settings. You'll graduate job ready with real-world experience and links to prospective employees.
