Students say:

"My VET studies at Tabor have been a fantastic experience – valuable and enjoyable. I found that the Cert IV TAA course, which I recently completed, was well presented and the material was relevant to my work. The lecturers had detailed knowledge of their subjects, were able to pass this knowledge on to the students, and were very supportive. So positive was my study experience at Tabor, that I come back for more and am presently studying for a Dip Management."

Just want to say a HUGE thank you for today and your fabulous assessor. My experience with the application of RPL was relaxing, enjoyable, easy to understand and has given me a new level of confidence with the knowledge that I know more than I thought and have had a wide range of experience which has helped me gain many skills.

Your assessor is truly gifted in this area. Her manner of asking questions and gaining information was excellent. Please pass on my appreciation to all in the RPL department.

After quite a time lapse I returned to study at Tabor, who I found to be supportive, patient and provided excellent information on my chosen qualification. I found the experience, one which not only made the course enjoyable but gave me a thirst for more studying.

The class based groups with interactive facilitators were a vital part of the learning experience. I found using Moodle an exciting new concept involving forums with other students, the uploading of assignments and the opportunity for discussion not only with my study group but the trainers as well.

Studying at Tabor was for me, a very positive experience. There you are supported by staff and fellow students who all make you feel involved , even if like myself, it was a whole new way of thinking. The course  I studied at Tabor is relevant to all workplaces, and  I have been able to implement that training into my current job. The benefits in doing the VET course are immense and only limited by your imagination. Currently, I have been able to set up a "self directed learning program" on our computer at work, for staff unable to attend training, all they need is a USB and off they go, able to learn in their own time at home if need be. I would recommend anyone to study at Tabor.

Tabor VET has wonderful trainers who are very approachable. I enjoyed the TAA course and learnt a lot about adult education and I am now using the skills I learnt to train nursing students. I feel Tabor prepared me well to be able to develop training programs and assess competencies. I love that I am still in touch with the trainers at Tabor and can ask questions at any time.

I was very aware that any nursing role I took in Nepal was going to have a lot of educational responsibilities, so I enrolled in Tabor's Cert IV TAA. It has been a great course to take me through the practicalities of planning, running and assessing learning programs. While its focus is on preparation to work in the Australian VET sector, the training is and resources will definitely be useful in my context in Nepal. It has been a very flexible program that has met my needs as well. What's more the course coordinator was very understanding of my desire to live out my faith in this way.

I have had the opportunity to study at Tabor through their On-line services. It has been a fantastic learning environment, with great subjects and very supportive lecturers. It has fitted easily into my life situation and I would highly recommend Tabor to anyone.

Employers say:

"Asthma Foundation SA have had several staff members complete Certificate IV Training and Assessment courses with Tabor College. Tabor offered our staff a range of available dates and delivery modes. We found the training to be professional, efficient and high quality."

On behalf of the Education and Community Corrections staff for whom you have provided training in Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, I would like to thank you and everyone one involved in the provision of that training for your excellent services.

All of the course participants have commented on the way in which the programs were presented and the friendly helpfulness of all the Tabor College staff with whom they had dealings. There has been much comment on the way in which, even those who had little or no experience in working with accredited training, were capably assisted in gaining knowledge as the work was always related to practical and meaningful situations.

Our staff have also commented most favourably,on the time and patience shown to them in determining areas where Recognition of Prior Learning could be (and was) applied.

We shall continue to support our staff to continue the post-training activities set in the training so that they will gain the Complete Certificate IV.

As the Team Leader of our department's Registered Training Organisation, I shall continue to recommend that our staff use Tabor College for TAE training because of the excellent service that has been experienced. I shall also extend this recommendation to other organisations seeking similar training.
