Gaining The Edge
Setting up for success in your studies
Gain the skills you need to succeed in your studies through the Gaining the Edge program. Participating in the program, you will learn essential language, digital, and interpersonal skills to ace your studies and step into the workplace with confidence. This flexible and free program runs alongside your course at GOTAFE as an optional add-on.
How Gaining the Edge works
The 16-week program is made up of four modules which cover:
- Digital literacy
- Placement & employability
- Learning to learn
Modules can be taken at the same time, or one after the other based on your needs. More detail on each module can be found below.
The program can be delivered at any GOTAFE campus, subject to demand, with a mixture of face-to-face and online learning. At the end of the program, you’ll receive a non-accredited certificate.
This program is being delivered in partnership with the Centre for Continuing Education.
Digital Essentials Level 1
Digital Essentials is designed to help learners understand the basics of various areas of technology, including different digital devices, their functionality and the ways people can use these devices to connect with others.
Digital Essentials Level 2
Digital Essentials is designed to extend learners’ understanding of technology, including the use of different digital devices, their functionality and the ways people can use these devices to connect with others and access services over the internet.
Step-up is an Adult language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) course, designed to build the skills and knowledge needed to enable learners to successfully progress into the Getting There Program.
To take part in this program you need to be an existing student at GOTAFE or have an application to study in progress.
