Online Education for People Just Like You
We’re more than just an online classroom. We understand that online learning can be daunting if you haven’t done much with technology over the years which is why we’ve tailored our courses and our processes to keep things as uncomplicated as possible. When you enrol in an online course with National College Australia, you’ll discover that there are many ways to feel connected outside of a classroom.
It’s worked for thousands of others, it can work for you too.
What it’s Like to Study at National College Australia
Let’s start at the beginning. Before we can set you up, we need to make sure we’ve got you in the right course first. You’ll need to put some time aside for a one on one interview with a Course Advisor so we can get to know you and make sure you’ve chosen the right course.
Assuming you have, we’ll get you into our systems within a few days at the most and contact you for an induction session. We want to make sure you understand how to use the online portal, the assessment requirements and your rights and responsibilities as a National College Australia student. A thorough induction is crucial to your success so please make the time for us when you’re asked. After induction, you’ll be ready to fire away!
During the course, it’s important to us that you feel ‘connected’ because this will make all the difference to your success (and ours). You’ll be given one dedicated assessor who will work with you from start to finsih but you’ll also have access to a dedicated Client Services Coordinator and Work Placement Coordinator at different stages of the program.
We understand that everyone learns in different ways and at a different pace. That’s why we offer online study courses that fit around your family, work and other commitments. Whether you’ve never studied before, or it’s been a while since you hit the books, our courses will give you the best chance at a successful completion. They’re designed for people just like you.
How It Works
Start by enrolling in a course at National College Australia, or get in touch with our team if you need help choosing a course that’s right for you.
We’ll send you a confirmation of your enrolment, with login details to our user-friendly online learning platform.
You’ll be allocated a qualified educator who will monitor your progress and provide ongoing support throughout your course.
We’ll provide you with everything you need to study online, from course materials to user guides.
Start your course at a time and place that suits you, by reading the materials we provide or doing your own research.
When you’re ready, go to the assessment section of the online learning platform and answer the questions or upload your assessment task.
Your educator will be notified when you submit an assessment task, so they can mark your work as either ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’.
You’ll receive a notification of your result and can either resubmit your assessment or move on to the next subject in the course.
If you don’t work in the industry, we’ll help you arrange a work placement where you’ll get real-life experience in the industry.
Once you have completed your workplace assessments and are deemed competent in all units, you’ll graduate and we’ll post you the certificate.
How You’re Assessed
Our online courses can be completed whenever you like, wherever you are. It’s a great way to fit study in around your work and lifestyle. Simply log in on any device and learn at your own pace. Each course focuses on practical skills that you’ll use in the real-world, rather than lots of theory.
Courses at National College Australia are made up of units that focus on particular skills or knowledge. When you complete an assessment task for each unit, your qualified educator will provide you with one of two outcomes:
This means you meet all the standards required in the unit
Not yet competent (NYC):
This means you have not yet met the standards required in the unit
If you receive a NYC mark, your educator will be in touch to help you understand where you need to improve. You’ll be given another chance to resubmit your work. However, if you need to resubmit it more than once, there may be extra costs involved. We want every student to achieve their goals, so if you need some extra support or want to discuss your assessment tasks, you can get in touch with your educator or our team.
Our online learning platform is interactive, easy to use and designed to keep you motivated throughout the course.
