Student services and support

North Regional TAFE is committed to helping students reach their career and study goals by providing a range of student services and support.
 

Literacy, numeracy and study support 
Literacy and numeracy support is available to all students once they have enrolled in a vocational qualification. This assists students to complete the qualification they are enrolled in by providing support with the reading, writing and numbers component of the course.
Disability Support

NRT is committed to providing access and equity of participation for students with disability to enable them to be involved fully and independently in all aspects of the College’s programs and services.
Our Disability Support Coordinator can provide information and advice, arrange reasonable adjustments, assistive equipment and technologies, interpreters and in-class tutorial support. 
Students are encouraged to make contact with the Disability Support Coordinator and lecturer about the impact of their disability, impairment or medical condition to assist in determining what supports will be needed while undertaking their course. All information given will be treated confidentially.

For more information on disability support available, please visit www.adcet.edu.au.
