For careers practitioners

Help & advice

The Victorian Skills Gateway is a valuable resource to help people at all life stages and career stages. It is helpful for exploring vocational education and training options offered by TAFE and training providers, and for making informed career decisions.

It lists over 1,200 TAFE and training courses delivered by over 400 training providers. Getting a qualification at a TAFE or other training provider can lead to over 500 occupations.

All the information is from reliable, accurate and up-to-date sources. These include the Victorian Department of Education and Training, the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Deloitte Access Economics, and the Australian Course Information Register.
