Frequently Asked Questions from Upskillers

What if I haven't studied in years?

That’s perfectly fine. You’ll be supported in the classroom with friendly, knowledgeable teachers who will guide you through your studies. There is additional support services available that include financial support, counseling, and academic support both online and in-person. 

Will I need to take leave from work?

Some employers offer study leave and it’s worth checking with your employer or in your contract to see if you’re entitled. Study leave can provide learners with additional time to prepare for assignments or exams during peak study periods. 

You may want to also consider pitching to your employer that any time spent studying is also time they're investing in you to their business. You’ll be able to apply your new knowledge directly in the workplace. 

What do I need to do next?

Choose a course to enrol into. Negotiate with your employer about any additional time required to attend classes or study leave to prepare for assignments or exams. Then contact one of our Enrolment and Course Advisors to help you start your upskilling journey.
