Analysis of year on year application data, statistics and patterns;
Updates on the ATAR implementation process and 2019 developments in real time;
Current QTAC schedules and practical tips for application and use;
2021 Tertiary Prerequisite discussion and practical examples; and
An introduction to university and VET widening participation opportunities

These topics are presented in a practical context and with a comprehensive takehome pack to enable participants to guide students through tertiary study choices with confidence.

Attendees have the opportunity to meet, upskill and network with other career education professionals and QTAC industry experts in a relaxed and informative environment.

FAQs

What should I do before the workshop?

This workshop assumes that all attendees have familiarised themselves with the most recent series of online modules, which will be made available to attendees approximately one month before the workshop date. The 2019 workshop modules cover the basics of the application process, including preferencing, how to respond to offers and how to change preferences and/or conditionally accept an offer. The modules also introduce topics such as ATAR and My Path.

What should I bring to the workshop?

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own device for ease of use. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

I want more professional development! What other options are available?

For the first time in 2019 (and informed by feedback in 2018), QTAC will be offering specialty masterclasses in three key areas: Higher Education Sector Insights, Widening Participation Opportunities and Unpacking the ATAR. Masterclasses are a shorter, more intensive option for the education professional wanting to upskill in a specific knowledge area. Details are on the QTAC website and bookings are available via EventBrite.

I just want to help my students to apply via QTAC. What are my options?

Book in a QTAC How to Apply presentation. Our experts will come to your school (during class hours or in the evening) and explain to your students how to make the most of the application process in an engaging and informative presentation . Booking details are on the QTAC website.

Alternatively, education professionals can download the 2019 How to Apply presentation and use it as a tool to assist in application discussions. This will be available in early 2019 on the QTAC website.

Is my registration transferrable?

We understand that sometimes work commitments take precedence, so you can transfer to another workshop date or change the name on your registration, however this must be completed by close of business the day before the workshop. If you encounter any last minute problems, please email us on presentations@qtac.edu.au

Is my registration refundable?

Please read QTAC's refund policy.
