Skills First

Skills First is a commitment to a contestable, but more managed training and TAFE system, where providers who have satisfied new rigorous standards will get government funding to provide high quality, industry relevant training to students.

Government funding eligibility

Generally, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place if you are:

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
  • a New Zealand citizen

and are any of the following:

  • under 20 years of age
  • seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course
    (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are receiving core skills training in other sectors)
  • seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
  • seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
  • 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification.

If you are enrolled at a school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through Skills First, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship.

Two courses at the same time, no more than two in a year

If you are eligible for a government-subsidised place, you can enrol in up to two government-subsidised courses at a time, but no more than two in a calendar year. You can only commence a maximum of two government-subsidised courses at the same level in your lifetime, whether you completed the courses or not. The restriction does not apply to courses on the Foundation Skills List or to students recommencing training in the same qualification.
