Literacy and numeracy
When you enrol in a course at Batchelor Institute, you should be able to speak, read and write in English. If you need help to improve your literacy and numeracy skills, there are special courses and other assistance available.

Course delivery
This course will be delivered in mixed mode. Mixed mode means that sometimes workshops will be held at a campus or study centre of Batchelor Institute and other times the lecturer will travel to your community to deliver a workshop. Remember, if you are working you will need to talk to your employer and make sure it is OK to attend the workshops.

You need to apply to ABSTUDY once you have enrolled at the Institute so your travel can be arranged. To do this you will need to obtain a Confirmation of Enrolment statement from the Institute and then take it to your nearest Centrelink office.

Student Travel
If you have to live away from home while you are attending a workshop, your travel, accommodation and meals will be organised and paid for (if you are enrolled in a course subsidised by the NT government).

Recognising your knowledge
Batchelor Institute recognises the importance of skills and knowledge that you may already have. You may have gained these through other work or study you have done or through life experience.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that tries to match these skills and knowledge to the outcomes of your course to assess whether you have achieved the required learning outcomes. If you think you are eligible for RPL, you need to complete an Application for Exemption form, attach the relevant evidence and give it to your lecturer or Student Operations.

The Institute recognises the qualifications and statements of attainment gained from any other Australian registered training organisation.


Course fees will apply for all courses in 2016. Certain students may be exempt from course fees. Visit for more information.
