HOW TO PAY FOR

YOUR COURSE

IN ORDER TO ENROL YOU MUST PAY YOUR FEES OR ENTER INTO A FEE PAYMENT

ARRANGEMENT. WE OFFER A RANGE OF OPTIONS TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU TO

PAY YOUR FEES.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION PLEASE REFER TO PAGE 9 OF THIS PROSPECTUS,

CONTACT OUR COURSE INFORMATION TEAM ON 9267 7500 OR

EMAIL INFO.CENTRE@POLYTECHNIC.WA.EDU.AU.

FEE SCHEDULES

A list of approximate fees for our courses is available on our website in the “fees” section. The fee schedule provides approximate prices only; the exact price will depend on the units selected when you enrol.

CONCESSION RATES

Students studying a certificate course may be eligible for a concession. Concession students pay 50% of the course fees (excluding incidental, resource or other fees).

You are entitled to concession rates if you hold, or are a dependent of a person who holds any of the following:

• A current Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card

• A current Repatriation Health Benefits Card issued by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs • A current recipient, or a dependant of a recipient, of AUSTUDY, ABSTUDY or Youth Allowance • Secondary school aged persons (in 2016, eligible students will be born on or after 1 July 1998

and must be at least 15 years old).

To claim the concession you must provide proof of your concession prior to the commencement of classes, otherwise you will be charged the full cost.

The easiest way to do that is to bring your concession along with you when you enrol.

If your concession is valid for the full enrolment period, then all eligible units commenced within that period attract the concession rate. If your concession is valid for part of the enrolment period, then only eligible units commenced prior to the expiry of the concession attract the concession rate. A concession does not apply for foundation skills courses or diploma and advanced diploma, associate degree or higher education qualifications.

FEES AND

CHARGES

POLYTECHNIC WEST OFFERS A RANGE OF PAYMENT OPTIONS TO HELP YOU WITH

PAYING FOR YOUR STUDY. PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ALL PAYMENT METHODS ARE

AVAILABLE FOR ALL TYPES OF COURSES.

TO DISCUSS PAYMENT OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR COURSE, PLEASE CONTACT

OUR COURSE INFORMATION TEAM ON 9267 7500 OR EMAIL THEM AT

INFO.CENTRE@POLYTECHNIC.WA.EDU.AU.

PAYMENT IN FULL

Students can elect to pay up front in person when they enrol at their Customer Service Centre via EFTPOS, cheque or credit card, or over the phone with a credit card.

FEE-HELP/VET FEE-HELP

FEE-HELP and VET FEE-HELP are Government Higher Education Loan Programs (HELP) which assist eligible students undertaking certain certificate, diploma and higher education courses with an approved provider.

HELP loan schemes are available to assist eligible students to pay their tuition fees for certain higher level qualifications, generally diplomas, advanced diplomas and associate degrees.

You do not have to use a HELP loan to pay your tuition fees. You can choose to pay all your tuition fees up front, you can pay some of your tuition fees upfront and use a HELP loan for the rest or, you can use a HELP loan for all of your tuition fees (up to your FEE-HELP limit).

If you are not eligible for a FEE-HELP or VET FEE-HELP loan, Polytechnic West has other options available to make paying your fees easy.

Visit www.polytechnic.wa.edu.au/content/fee-helpvet-fee-help to check if you and the course you want to study are eligible for FEE-HELP/VET FEE-HELP.

INSTALMENT PLANS

Instalment plans are available to students (excluding higher education students) to spread fees over the period of your enrolment. When you enter an instalment plan, you are entering a legally binding contract to pay your fees in full by the agreed dates. Payments can be made by direct debit from a bank account or credit card and will be paid fortnightly over the semester. Instalment plan length is 16 weeks (eight fortnightly instalments) for a one semester course or 32 weeks (16 fortnightly instalments) for a two semester course.

To set up an instalment plan make sure you bring your bank account or credit card details when you enrol. You are required to pay at least $100 of your course cost as a deposit upon enrolment, but you can pay more if you wish. Paying a larger deposit will decrease your fortnightly payments over the semester.

THIRD PARTY PAYMENTS

If you are a registered apprentice or trainee, a third party (i.e. employer) may pay for your fees. To do this you will need to complete a Polytechnic West Third Party Invoice Authority Form and have it signed by the third party, and/or a purchase order must be provided.

I BELIEVE A VET PATHWAY

IN SCHOOL PROVIDES A

GREAT INSIGHT INTO WHAT

YOU CAN ACHIEVE IN YOUR

CHOSEN CAREER.

I was finishing year 11 and 12 at high school

and had a passion for computers, IT and

digital media.

This passion led me to taking the more

hands-on VET for Schools pathway at

Polytechnic West. I thought it was a great

opportunity to improve myself over time,

instead of applying for a computer science

degree at university after year 12; which

I thought was too soon. This pathway

appealed to me because I got to have more

flexibility, keeping my options open.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and believe it is a

great way to learn industry specific skills you

would otherwise miss out on in the ordinary

high school stream with ATAR classes, then

jumping straight to university.

I’d say honestly to anyone thinking

about what to do; give the VET pathway

consideration and don’t dismiss it as a less

effective option, because it will definitely take

you closer to where you want to go in life.

All the work experience has helped me grow

as a person.

ROBERT RUBERY

2014 VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING BEAZLEY MEDALIST

POLYTECHNIC WEST REALISES THAT HELPING

YOUR CHILD DECIDE WHICH OPTION TO TAKE

WHEN IT COMES TO FURTHER EDUCATION CAN

BE DAUNTING.

WHERE TO START?

Students are more likely to choose a career which suits them if they understand their own likes and dislikes. As a parent, you can help your child develop self-awareness by discussing these simple ideas with them.

Remember, skills they use at school, at work, at home, in the community and on the sporting field are all relevant. • Ask your child what they have and have not enjoyed

learning, and why

• Support your child when they want to try new things and expand their horizons

• Pursue new interests together to reinforce the importance of learning at all ages

• Help your child get to know what they are good at • Help your child to investigate jobs that relate to their

interests.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Most tertiary education courses will require a pass mark in English or its equivalent. Many will also require a pass in maths.

Polytechnic West recommends that English and math based courses be completed by those students hoping to continue into further education.

Encourage your child to keep their options open when selecting their subjects for further study and remind them to take their time.

PRACTICAL STEPS FOR PARENTS

Below are some steps you can take to help your child succeed in the changing world of education, work and training.

• Talk to school staff about their performance, strengths and abilities

• Ensure there is a balance between study, work, rest and play

• Provide time and space for homework

• Set tasks around the home to encourage responsible work habits

• Encourage participation in voluntary, casual or part– time work so skills and work practices can be learned • Encourage your child to keep their options open; the wider the range for consideration, the more likely they are to find one that works for them

• Interview friends, family or neighbours in occupations of interest

• Go to career expos and open days.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENT LIAISON

Polytechnic West’s Prospective Student Liaison team is available for:

• Campus tours (Armadale, Balga, Bentley, Carlisle, Midland, Jandakot, Thornlie)

• Parent information evenings • Career expos • Online workshops • Presentation bookings. The team can also present information on pathways (from high school to vocational study to university), course information (including associate degrees), entrance requirements and applications.

IF IT’S SOMETHING YOU’RE

REALLY KEEN ABOUT,

SOMETHING YOU LOVE,

YOU HAVE TO FULFIL

THAT DREAM.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all those

who helped and supported me along the

way.

Polytechnic West has been incredibly

supportive of me in all my endeavours over

the last few years.

The lecturers are extremely knowledgeable

and all bring their extensive experience from

working in the industry to the classroom.

I’ve been truly blessed that at my age, in this

industry, I’ve been given a second chance

that I can do something else with my life, and

not many people have that opportunity.

Granted, I had to use some initiative of my

own to get there, but we have an industry

that supports such initiative and that’s really a

bonus.

Get out there and do it, because the

opportunities and training pathways now

exist.

THE LECTURERS WERE

GREAT AND OBVIOUSLY

REALLY KNOWLEDGEABLE

ABOUT THE INDUSTRY.

I began my apprenticeship as a mechanical

fitter in 2011 in my hometown of Newman.

My first year on the job was at the Mount

Whaleback mine site on the outskirts of town.

There were not many girls around the site,

and going in at 16 it was a bit intimidating,

but it didn’t take long for that to go away.

I love my job and I know it’s what I want to do

so at the end of the day all that other stuff

doesn’t matter.

I settled in really well at Polytechnic West. The

facilities were huge and way better than what

I could have expected. The lecturers didn’t

just do the minimum; there was plenty of help.

They always backed me up.

I’m definitely keen to upskill at some point;

I want to do a Certificate IV in Fluid Power.

Probably not right away though, I might settle

into life as a fully qualified fitter first.
