Victorian Skills First Programme

Skills First is a Victorian Government scheme that helps people access vocational education and training. If you are eligible, the government will contribute to the cost of your training.

To be eligible for subsidised training, you must be:
  • an Australian citizen, or
  • an Australian permanent resident, or
  • a New Zealand citizen.
Age requirements:

You are eligible for subsidised training in 2020 if you are under 20 years old as of 1 January 2020.

If you are under 20 years old (As of 1st January in the year of commencement of training), you are only eligible for subsidised training for courses leading to a higher qualification than you already have. For example, if you have a Certificate III, you can’t do a subsidised Certificate III course.

Not Eligible For Funding?

If you are not eligible for fee subsidies you may still enrol in the qualification as a Full Fee Paying student.

Please contact us today for the best price. We have flexible payment options available so that finance is not a stumbling block for you to get your education.
