Further Study Skills

Why should I study Further Study Skills?

Further Study Skills is a course developed to help students build the skills they require to engage meaningfully in SACE and further education. Although a majority of students transition to this course after the New Arrivals Program, there are no pre-requisites. The Further Study Skills program covers six subjects in total: English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Humanities and Work Readiness. These subjects are designed to give students the opportunity to build on their study skills in a variety of classroom settings. Those considering joining our program typically look to improve their skills before entering SACE Stage 1.

Where does Further Study Skills lead?

Further Study Skills is centred on preparing students to transition to SACE Stage 1, but the skills can be transferred to study in general. Over six months to a year, students will develop their skills to continue into Stage 1 effectively with the skills required to succeed. Further Study Skills helps students to develop their organisation, computing and analytical skills to be successful in further study.
