About government-subsidised training

Students may be eligible for government-subsidised training. This is only offered by training providers who have a contract with the Victorian Government to deliver government-subsidised training.

If you're eligible, the government will contribute to the cost of the training.




Finding government-subsidised training

Government-subsidised training is marked with this symbol Government-subsidised training available. Course availability data is sourced from the Australian Course Information Register.

About Tuition fee-free at TAFE

Courses marked 'Tuition fee-free at TAFE' are on the Victorian Government's Free TAFE for Priority Courses initiative list. This means students who are eligible for government-subsidised training can enrol in one priority course for free at a TAFE Victoria provider in 2019.

Eligibility

Your TAFE will confirm your eligibility when you enrol in a course on the Free TAFE for Priority Courses initiative list.

It's important to know that TAFEs may charge other fees, such as student services fees or materials fees, and you'll need to cover these costs yourself.

Before you enrol:

About pre-apprenticeship courses

This course is available to study as a pre-apprenticeship. A pre-apprenticeship is a great way to get a feel for the industry before committing to an apprenticeship.

Some pre-apprenticeships can help reduce the length of a formal apprenticeship. This only applies to selected courses approved by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). To find out if this applies to your pre-apprenticeship contact your training provider.

For more information about pre-apprenticeships, see our Pre-Apprenticeships page.

About occupations in demand

When an occupation has a skills shortage, it means the chances of getting a job after completing your course could be higher.

The information used to identify occupations in demand is primarily sourced from Higher Education and Skills Group (HESG) in the Department of Education and Training (DET), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and Deloitte Access Economics.
