Academic Skills Support

Skills Sessions 

CTC offers its students ongoing assistance with academic writing skills:
  • Academic Skills sessions – free to all students. 
    Topics include: library orientation; CTC style guide; ARK learning management system; avoiding plagiarism.
    Semester One: Monday 26 February, 2:00am – 5:00pm.
    Semester Two: Monday 6 August, 6.00pm – 9.00pm (repeat session). 
  • The Semester One unit AP1001C Academic Writing, Critical Thinking and Logic has two components. The Academic Writing component assists students to develop basic skills in academic writing, reading, note-taking and essay writing. The Critical Thinking and Logic component is quite separate and information on this is available on the relevant unit page. To benefit from both components, students are encouraged to enrol in the full unit, either for credit or via audit (no assessment). Alternatively, students can avail themselves of just the Academic Writing component to attend all the following sessions for $100:
    • Wednesday 28 February 10:00am – 12.00pm (2 hours)

Students wishing to improve their writing skills, or developing their argument to clear conclusions can also benefit from working with the academic tutor.
  • Dedicated ESL (English as a Second Language) tutors are available to students who need assistance with specialist study skills within their various units.
