What People Are Saying…

Dear Liz,
I can confirm with you that there are many job opportunities in schools for Education Support (ES) staff – this includes Integration Aides, Sickbay Attendants, Library Officers and Administration Officers. In fact demand for such personnel is increasing and will continue to grow in the foreseeable future. The Teacher Aide course which you are providing is an excellent opportunity for adults who are interested in working in schools in non-teaching roles as the course embraces a wide range of different ES roles that exist in schools and will give graduates the edge when seeking school employment. For the record, I employ 12 ES staff currently and I expect that this number will continue to grow in the future.

I commenced with Eastern Colleges in February 2018 to undertake Certificate III in Education Support. Everyone I have come across during this time have been so amazing and supportive in helping me achieve my dream of working in the education sector. I am happy to report that I am now working. I would highly recommend this course to other mums out there looking to re enter the workforce.

Hi Gurmit,
Just want to quickly say thank you. I always feel very inspired and pumped after your class. You are an amazing teacher and your stories and experiences are an absolute pleasure to listen to.
So Thank you again.

The Cert III Education Support course has helped me maintain my responsibilities as a mother of 2 beautiful children, a home-maker and an aspiring career woman. This course has equipped me with the skills and experiences to assist teachers in classrooms, understanding and supporting the learning needs of students with special needs. I am now a Teacher Aide (TA) in a local school.
