  • Questions about online courses

    What are the best online courses?

    What constitutes the “best” online course will be different for everyone, as the best online course will be one that suits your individual needs, interests, goals and learning style. 

    Upskilled offers a wide range of online courses in:

    Business 
    • Leadership and management
    • Project management
    • Workplace health and safety
    • Human resources
    • Marketing
    Community services
    • Mental health
    • Alcohol and other drugs
    • Case management
    • Community sector management
    • Counselling
    • Disability
    • Ageing, Home and Community
    IT
    • Networking
    • Cloud engineering
    • Cyber security
    • Programming
    • Systems administration support

    Qualifications include certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates and short courses. We also provide specialist trainers and support to students to ensure quality of education.

    The best online course can be something different for everyone, so it’s important to talk to one of our education consultants before enrolling in any course to make sure it’s right for you. Get in touch with us on 1300 009 924 to learn more.
     

    What is the difference between a diploma and a certificate qualification?

    There are various different paths of study available to prospective students, but it can be unclear what the difference is between certificates and diplomas, and which is right for you. 

    In summary, Diplomas are a higher level of qualification aimed at people who are already working in mid-level to senior positions within the relevant industry, or have multiple years of experience. Diplomas provide you with a deeper understanding of a particular area of knowledge. 

    Certificates are aimed more at people with limited to no experience in the relevant industry, and are looking to change careers or get started on their first career journey. Certificates provide knowledge and skills to complete routine tasks and build up to more specific knowledge and skills as you move up from a Certificate II to a Certificate III and IV. 

    For a full breakdown of the 10 levels of qualifications as defined by the Australian Qualifications Framework, see here.
     

    What are the entry requirements? 

    We have a flexible admissions policy for our online courses. We understand that prospective students like you have different skills and experience, so our education consultants are more than happy to chat about your eligibility for a course.

    Many Upskilled courses do not have specific entry requirements, or may have very general entry requirements.

    To complete your course, you may need access to a computer and the internet, and will also need to have proficient language and learning skills.

    How long does an online course go for?

    It's best to check the duration on the individual course page, or check with one of our Education Consultants by calling 1300 009 924


    Do you offer online degrees?

    Upskilled is an affiliate partner with La Trobe University and we provide a listing of their applied degrees in IT and business on our website. We handle part of the enrolment process and can offer you information about each study program. The rest of the enrolment process, as well as the delivery of the courses is taken care of by the university and their delivery partner, Didasko.

    What does nationally recognised mean?

    Nationally recognised courses are VET Accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). This means a nationally recognised qualification is the same, no matter where you earn it. This provides employers with the guarantee that the qualification listed on your resume is quality assured. A recognised qualification will be valuable (and recognised) anywhere within Australia.

    In order to teach a recognised qualification here at Upskilled, we have to meet a variety of standards as defined by ASQA. This means a nationally recognised qualification is the same, no matter where it’s earned. Employers anywhere in Australia are thus provided the guarantee that the qualification listed on your resume is quality-assured.

  • Questions about online learning

    How does online learning work?

    Online study allows you to learn skills anywhere, anytime without having to compromise on quality. But how does it work?

    When you study online with Upskilled, you’ll be assigned specialist trainers who will provide you with necessary support and guidance throughout your journey. They will keep in regular contact, ensuring you receive the assistance needed to achieve your goals. Upskilled trainers are industry experts, and can guide and assist you every step of the way.

    When you learn online with Upskilled, you’ll be given access to an interactive, secure e-learning platform called MyUpskilled, where study materials are delivered with 24/7 accessibility. This means you can study anytime! On top of your necessary resources for study, MyUpskilled also provides you with unlimited access to discussion boards, webinars and a trainer/student messaging system.

    Finally, you'lll submit your assignments to your trainer via MyUpskilled, and will receive feedback and grading for your work. 
     

    What are the benefits of online study?

    The key benefit of online study is being able to study when you want, where you want. As all course materials are delivered through an online learning platform, you aren’t required to travel to a physical location to learn, saving time and money.

    With online learning, you can create your own study schedule rather than having to work to a set timetable. This is great for anyone balancing other work, personal and family commitments, or anyone who works better absorbing content at their own pace.

    Online study also gives you the choice of pursuing alternative study methods which may suit your learning style better. For example, perhaps you learn better independently, rather than in a crowded classroom setting. Or perhaps the flexibility of working through content at your own pace allows you to retain information and skills better. 

    Upskill in the field of your choice and learn at a schedule and pace that suits you best, all from the comfort of your own home.
     

    Is online study better than in-class learning?

    Whether you choose to study online or in a traditional classroom setting should depend on your time, budget, location and learning preferences. 

    Online learning has a range of benefits, including:
    • Study anytime, anywhere - you’re free to take your study materials anywhere, allocate your study hours around your work schedule, and are not required to travel to a physical campus. 
    • Study at your own pace - you have the opportunity to work when you're most productive, and can establish your own study schedule. You also have access to online student support should any issues arise.
    • Balance priorities - you have the opportunity to  gain qualifications and work-ready skills while maintaining your other commitments. Many students remain in employment while reaching their learning goals.
  • Questions about payment options

    What payment options are available?

    There are a range of different payment options available to cater to your needs:
    • Upfront payment - receive 15% OFF your course fee when you pay upfront.
    • Upskilled payment plans - Upskilled offer flexible fortnightly or monthly payment plans that allow you to start studying now without the financial burden.
    • Study now, pay later - Upskilled has also teamed up with Zip to offer you flexible weekly, fortnightly and monthly interest-free payment plans.
    • Government subsidised training - depending on the state or territory you reside in, you may be eligible for various forms of government funding or incentives.


    Do you offer payment plans?

    Yes. Upskilled offer fortnightly or monthly payment plans which are available over a 12 month period. These allow you to pay for your course as you’re studying, rather than in one upfront lump sum payment.


    What are the government funding options?

    The Australian Government, at both a federal and state level, is committed to upskilling the Australian workforce, so have created a variety of funding schemes and incentive opportunities to subsidise qualifications.

    There are various different types of funding available, including:

  • Questions about digital badges

    What is a digital badge?

    A digital badge is a new and quick way you can share your qualifications with co-workers and potential employers that garners respect. After you complete your course with Upskilled, you can add a digital badge to your email signature or digital resume and post it on social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.


    What are the benefits of digital badges?

    Sharing your digital badges helps you to boost your professional network and build your personal brand. It allows employers to view and acknowledge your skills and expertise, potentially helping to expand your career opportunities and creating the opportunity to build meaningful connections with other people in your industry. 


    How do digital badges work?

    Digital badges are made up of two parts - the image and a text description.

    The image of the badge represents the qualification and skills you have achieved, whilst the text description, otherwise known as the digital credential, is the evidence behind the digital badge. 

    This text description is made up of metadata which will tell anyone viewing the badge who earned the badge (you), when you earned it, what you achieved, and who verifies the achievement (Upskilled). 
     

    How do I get a digital badge?

    When you successfully complete an eligible course through Upskilled, you will be notified via email that you have earned a badge! This email will contain information and instructions on how to claim and share your badge.

    You can also log into the digital badging platform of your choice to claim your badge, so long as you use the same email address you enrolled with.

    Digital badges come at no extra cost to you.
     

    How do I share my digital badge?

    Once you have been awarded your badge, you will then be able to share it in a range of ways to help others recognise and celebrate your achievements. You can:

    • Copy a link to share in a post on your preferred social media channel, in an email, as a direct message or any other platform you would like.
    • Share directly to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
    • Copy html code to embed and add your badge to digital resumes, email signatures, websites, and more.

    ‚Äč
    How safe are digital badges?

    Unlike traditional printed certificates, digital badges cannot be stolen.

    The digital image is securely linked to verified information and data, protecting it from fake claims and ensuring your badge and identity are always safe. 

    Once claimed, you are able to store and display your digital badges on free platforms like Badgr and Open Badge Passport, which also verify the authenticity of your badges. 

    Finally, you’re also able to configure your privacy settings to choose whether your badges are public or private, or to only show certain people a select set of digital credentials.
