TAFE assists independent learners enter Uni

Jed Curry and Karen Christie3
For Jedidiah Curry the Tertiary Preparation Certificate (TPC) was his ticket to a double degree at University. Hunter TAFE’s TPC gives students who may not otherwise finish school a fresh chance at success and entering university.
Four Hunter TAFE TPC Students took learning into their own hands and have been accepted into bachelor degrees in Law, Social Science, Psychology, Science and Criminal Justice. Jedidiah Curry is just one of those students and this year started at the University of Newcastle.
Thanks to Jed’s persistence, tenacity and commitment to independent learning he was successfully accepted into a double degree at the University of Newcastle, combining a Bachelor of Laws with a Bachelor of Social Science.
Hunter TAFE teacher, Karen Christie said that the TPC course is often the best option for those where school, for one way or another didn’t work out, but have the potential to achieve great success in their own way.
Hunter TAFE offers the Certificate IV in Tertiary Preparation (TPC) with an emphasis on skill-based learning as well as disciplinespecific content. It is a recognised tertiary entry qualification by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC), NSW universities and some interstate universities.
