As a TVH, you provided a current passport or documentation from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) showing your current visa sub-class, paid the TAFE NSW fee and may have paid unit tuition fees. You would also have completed a Supplementary Enrolment form for TVH. If units are added to your current enrolment you may need to pay these unit tuition fees depending on your visa sub-class. The Institute is not responsible for the non- completion of your course if you are required to leave Australia. For more information on TVH eligibility to study at TAFE NSW, telephone our multicultural community engagement officer on (02) 9208 9595 or (02) 9208 1732. TAFE NSW conducts audits twice a year verifying an enrolled student’s residency status with DIAC. As a result, any student may be contacted and required to provide proof of residency status. Testamur see also - Nationally Recognised Training This is an official qualification or award issued to you following the completion of a TAFE NSW approved course of study. The testamur acknowledges that you have met the requirements of the course through study, recognition or skills assessment. This may be a graduate certificate, advanced diploma, diploma, certificate or statement of attainment. If you are unable to complete the qualification you started, you may be able to apply to receive a lower level qualification or statement of attainment. Please talk to your teacher or customer service officer. See also Embedded Qualifications. Textbooks For some courses, you may need a text book. Your textbook list will be given to you at enrolment or your first class. Second hand books are often advertised for sale on notice boards around the colleges. Remember that the college libraries have a large collection of books, magazines, and other materials that you can borrow to support your studies. Important Changes to TAFE NSW fees for 2015 From 1 January 2015 the NSW Government will be introducing changes to how students access government subsidised training in NSW. These changes are part of the Smart and Skilled reforms of the NSW vocational educational and training system and affect all new and continuing students. It covers all qualification levels Certificate II to Advanced Diploma, Selected Foundation Skills courses at Certificate I and II levels, all apprenticeships and selected traineeships. The Smart and Skilled (www.training. nsw.gov.au/smartandskilled) website has further information on Smart and Skilled, including eligibility requirements.
