Everyone knows that computers have changed the way schools, colleges and universities operate in today's world.
Changes in education have been affected by more than just computers.

  •     People study longer than ever before
  •     Adults retrain throughout their lives, for career changes
  •     People travel to different cities and countries to study
  •     Employers train their staff more than ever before

Increasing activity in education and more varied ways of teaching; has created entrepreneurial opportunities beyond anything needed in the past; but also a far more complicated education industry than what ever existed in the past.

Success in Education today depends as much on management skills as it does on teaching skills!

If you want a sustainable career in education; your opportunities will be greatly enhanced by this course.

 Lesson Structure:    Advanced Diploma in  Instructional and Training Skills

There are three parts to this course:

1. Foundation Modules (4)
These courses develop a capacity to better manage yourself and others in an education context. These modules,
though generic in their delivery, are designed to offer lots of opportunity to relate set tasks and assignments to the education context.

2. Stream Modules (3) chosen from the following options:

(Choose only three of the above)

3. Workplace Project (200 hrs)

  • There are different options available to you to satisfy this requirement:

Alternative 1.

If you work in the industry that you have been studying; you may submit a reference from your employer, in an effort to satisfy this industry (ie. workplace project) requirement; on the basis of RPL (ie. recognition for prior learning), achieved through your current and past work experience.

The reference must indicate that you have skills and an awareness of your industry, which is sufficient for you to work in a position of responsibility.

Alternative 2.

  •  A one module credit (100 hrs) can be achieved by verifying attendance at a series of industry meetings, as follows:
  •  Meetings may be seminars, conferences, trade shows, committee meetings, volunteer events (eg. Community working bees), or any other meeting
     where two or more industry people or people who are   knowledgeable about their discipline.
  •  Opportunity must exist for the student to learn through networking, observation and/or interaction with people who know their industry or discipline
  •  A list of events should be submitted together with dates of each attended and times being claimed for each
  •  Documentary evidence must be submitted to the school to indicate support each item on the above list (eg. Receipts from seminars, conference or shows, letters from committee or organisation secretaries or committee members. All such documentation must contain a contact details)

Alternative 3.

  • Credits can be achieved by completing standard modules Workplace Project I, II and/or III
  • Each of these modules comprises a series of "hands on" PBL projects, designed as learning experiences that involve interaction with the real world.
    (This approach is based upon tried and proven learning approaches that originated in American universities but are now widely used and respected
    by academia throughout many countries). See the web site or handbook for more detail.

Alternative 4.

  • If you do not work in the relevant industry, you need to undertake a project as follows. 

How Long Does it Take:  The average student will take around 900 hours to complete this course.



We often hear about adults needing to get their work-life balance right, but the same can be said for children. The world has changed. People are more aware of risks to our children - health and safety issues, environmental risks, germs, and so on - so how we treat our children has also changed. Often they are not allowed to play outside or undertake certain activities in case they injure themselves, and they live in ultra-clean environments which is now thought to have increased the propensity of food allergies in children.

Furthermore, some children are put under greater pressure from a younger age to succeed; be it as an athlete, musician, artist, intellect, or whatever else. In other cases, a child may be reared in an environment where they are deprived of the opportunity to develop social relationships or play due to things like poverty, disrupted home lives, or being given up for adoption. In some instances they have little time to just be a child and enjoy their childhood. Consequently, they may engage in less social interaction. In recent decades there has been a plethora of research that has underlined the importance of social development in children and the significance of play in that process.
