A highly practical, fully guided and supported online course.

Duration: 12 months (some learners may be able to fast-track depending on experience and learning ability).


Earn the qualification entirely or partially through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and complete any remaining gaps online.

Duration: up to 12 months to complete.

To complete the course you will be required to undertake a range of projects and practical tasks, observations, written activities and interviews. We’ll work with you to help you develop the knowledge and skills to be successful.

You are required to undertake 100 hours work placement, in an approved education setting of your choice (if you’re not already employed at a school).

Yes, the guidelines require you to be employed as a teacher aide and have 2 years’ experience to obtain full RPL.

Evidence can take a variety of forms. It is basically anything that demonstrates your day-to-day job responsibilities and tasks. Some examples include:

  • Copy of school or departmental policies relevant to the particular unit you are undertaking (example; diversity and inclusiveness, legislation and guidelines of code of conduct and student protection etc.)
  • Copy of a worksheet or poster you have helped design to support relevant unit of work
  • Work timetable showing you working with specific groups of students.

We will work with you until your RPL is successfully completed. Sometimes we may need to request that students provide us with more information, or another piece of evidence to demonstrate their work in a particular area. In some cases “gap” training (i.e., undertaking additional learning and/or assessment activities) may be necessary to complete that part of the course. As we are a nationally recognised provider of the Certificate IV in Education Support we are very well placed to provide you with any extra training, should that be necessary.

The assessments include answering questions and workplace scenarios. You are required to undertake 100 hours work placement, in an approved education setting of your choice if you’re not already employed at a school (Quite often we find that people get a job out of their work placement).

There are no essays, stressful exams or large work portfolios.

Arranging work placement is your responsibility, however our team may be able to assist you in how to approach different organisations and tips on how to be successful.

No. To complete the Certificate IV in Education Support, you do not need to be currently employed as a Teacher’s Aide.

If you are undertaking the full Certificate IV in Education Support, with no RPL at all, it is a 12 month program.

Please carefully consider whether or not you have the time to dedicate to completing this course. Certificate IV (AQF Level 4) is one level below a Diploma (AQF 5) but with dedication and good support it’s a challenge worth accepting!

If you’re unable to consistently dedicate at least 10 hours per week you need to reconsider if now is the right time to undertake this course. We have regular intakes so there’s no rush to enrol now. Talk to us about your situation if you’re unsure.

Accellier creates legitimate opportunities for fast-track learning and assessment where there are existing skills and abilities. Typically people find time savings through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). We have no desire to ‘lock’ anyone into a pace that unnecessarily slows development or loses career opportunities. To become good at something takes time, however.

Illegitimate fast-tracking of courses is a widespread concern of the industry and the regulator, ASQA. The regulator often shuts down or sanctions dodgy providers that offer cheap and fast course. Some providers have been forced to cancel and withdraw student certificates or re-train them where they have cut corners.
Imagine having paid hundreds of dollars and taken time off work to complete a fast-track course only to have your qualification revoked, or having to go back to redo parts of it?

Many of these providers have a bad name amongst employers. Often training organisations will not employ trainers with Certificates from certain places with a reputation for cheap fast track courses due to the sheer lack of key skills development in these programs.

There are two sections we want you to read, understand and be comfortable with before enrolling with us:

  1. The Important Enrolment Information section – a combination of a client handbook and general terms and conditions which apply to all courses.
  2. The information below which includes entry requirements specific to this course.

  • Arrange for at least 100 hours work-placement in an approved organisation.
  • Have access to a suitably experienced 3rd party person who can assist us with making our assessment decisions where required (e.g., you have the support of a manager or supervisor to do the course).
