If you are considering a course at TAFE SA, please connect with student services for planning your support needs.
Student services provides support to assist students living with disability, medical condition or mental health to achieve their learning goals. Our staff are available to confidentially discuss support at any stage during your studies. Our services are provided free of charge.
When you enrol you can indicate you have a disability or a medical condition on your enrolment form. Information will be sent to you via email. This includes:
Printed copies of the kits are also available from student services or student hub staff at any TAFE SA campus.
If you don’t indicate your disability at enrolment you can do it any time during your studies or simply contact student services to discuss support.
An Access Plan is one way TAFE SA can assist you to identify and communicate your learning needs.
An Access Plan can assist you to share your personal information about your disability, medical condition or mental health support needs to lecturers so that reasonable adjustments can be negotiated. It also details any agreed services which will be provided by student services. You will need to provide student services with supporting documentation. Having an Access Plan is a choice.
