English, Languages and Foundation Studies

Why take an English Language or Foundation Course at CR TAFE?

Has it been a while since you have studied or worked? And you are not sure if taking a course at TAFE will be right for you? Or maybe studying just feels scary? Then it looks like a foundation course might just give you the confidence you need to undergo further studies or find employment! 

Foundation courses offer you an opportunity to settle in to further studies in a supportive environment. If you do not have a high school qualification, then a foundation course is the perfect way to prepare you for the next steps you want to take. 

Do you feel like you are lacking certain skills or just need a refresher? Maybe you have a dream career but need to brush up on some basic skills before entering a higher-level course or workplace - that’s exactly what foundation courses are for!

Where do you want to go?

At Central Regional TAFE, we want to help you achieve your study and career goals with confidence and excitement. Whether you have your eyes set on a particular career, are wanting to take further studies or are hoping to engage more deeply with your local community, we want to help you get there. 

You can look at English Language and Foundational Skills courses as a stepping stone to get you where you want to go. And the sky’s just the limit!
