Plan 2 Go

Plan2go is a simulated workplace featuring a contemporary design and state of the art website. The purpose of this user friendly resource is to provide context to students when completing assessments and activities where a workplace is needed. Many of our students are not currently employed or working in small to medium enterprise, where they do not have access to policies and procedures. TAFENow provides pathways to employment and therefore many assessments require a workplace to review and critique.

Plan2go is a national travel and event technology company and the resource includes all of the plans, policies, procedures and product information you would find in a real organisation. You will find mission and vision statements, strategic and operational plans, WHS and risk management systems, position descriptions and project files. Our students find this resource invaluable for any course and many of the assessments in our business suite have now integrated the Plan2go simulated organisation into unit assessment

Course Reviews
“It was much easier to learn online than go to class, I travel away a lot for my job, so it was great to catch up on reading whenever I had spare time. I just took my textbook and iPad whenever I went on a business trip. I also put time aside on weekends and during the week and stuck to a study plan. That got me through the course easily. The support provided by TAFEnow teachers was great too, so I would thoroughly recommend this mode of learning to anyone in business or management. The teachers go through your work with you and explain things if you’ve got any queries.”
