Career and course counselling

Helping you choose the right study path

Choosing the wrong course for your needs could result in a waste of time and money. We can help you choose the right course.

Choose the right course

If you are thinking of enrolling at Sydney TAFE, our counsellors can help you with:

  • Making good course choices
  • Planning your career and re-training
  • How to apply for credit to gain entry to a course or reduce the time spent finishing a course
  • Other concerns or questions about returning to study.

This confidential service is offered free-of-charge to help you choose the right study or training pathway.

Three things you might not know about our counsellors

  • Sydney TAFE Counsellors (including bilingual counsellors) are situated across all seven colleges — only TAFE can provide this level of support.
  • Our counsellors offer expert career guidance – they can help you choose the right course, succeed in your course and achieve your goals.
  • All our counsellors are highly-qualified: eligibility for registration as a Psychologist is a position requirement — they offer professional help with concerns affecting your study.

Help along the way

Sydney TAFE Counsellors are available at every stage of your learning journey with us. See Learning support and Personal counselling for more information about how a TAFE Counsellor may assist you.
