Dress Standards
TAFE Queensland is predominantly an adult learning environment that prepares you for employment in business and industry, as well as for further career-related training. As such you are expected to wear smart casual clothing at all times that would be expected in the workplace. There is no desire on the part of TAFE Queensland to make dress standards too rigid. However, whilst attending TAFE or any off campus training, you should wear appropriate clothing.

It is recommended that students have access to a reliable internet connection to access TAFE Queensland's online learning system Connect and a computer with up-to-date software, including Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash Player. This equipment and software is available for students to use at all TAFE Queensland locations.

Timetable

  • Classes are held one day per week over 4 weeks at Southport and at TAFE Queensland Gold Coast's Hospitality Hub, 11 Nerang Street, Southport.
  • This will require commitment from students to attend all sessions.
  • Classes consist of theory and practical components.
