Struggling with Distance Learning? This Might Help!

Self-paced distance learning study, can be a great option for those who are time-poor, or who may not live in a location with easy access to face to face training.  But it can also be a little challenging for some.  You need to be disciplined in setting aside time to work on your studies, and your training provider must be able to provide you with the support and tools you need in order to successfully complete.

A few tips to succeed with distance learning courses:

  1. Put set times in your diary to work on your course.  We suggest 2 hour blocks of time, with breaks in between.
  2. Turn off your phone, and disable social media and email notifications.  And don’t start checking your emails first – it’s a rabbit hole, and they’ll still be there when your 2 hours is up.
  3. Find yourself an accountability study buddy.  If you are a TAE student with RAM, you can call out for one in our Facebook TAE Support Group.
  4. Use all tools provided to you to get assistance, eg Facebook groups, Q&A webinars, tutorial videos etc.

*Update: For RAM’s TAE40122 students who have chosen the Distance Learning STANDARD method, but haven’t managed to arrange a VET qualified Trainer & Assessor to sit in on and lead the simulated validation activities, or the 3 individuals required to complete assessment tasks on, we offer a live virtual 3-day Assessment & Validation Workshop that covers these practical components of the course.  You can add this onto your enrolment at any time.  Give our office a call on 1300 328 500 for upcoming workshop dates, and to book in.
