  • This is to acknowledge that training for government subsidised courses is delivered with Victorian and Commonwealth Government funding.

    The Victorian Government provides subsidised places for eligible residents into some TAFE courses. In general, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place under ‘Skills First’ if you are:

    • an Australian citizen
    • a Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
    • a New Zealand citizen
    • an Asylum seeker/victim of human trafficking (must have ARC/ASRC referral, or online VEVO validation by Institute staff)

    and are living in Victoria for the duration of your studies;

    and are any of the following:

    • under 20 years of age
    • any age and 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)
    • any age and seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
    • any age and 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.**

    and are commencing/concurrently studying no more than 2 government-subsidised courses in a calendar year;

    and are commencing no more than 2 government-subsidised courses at the same Australian Qualification Framework level in your lifetime (some exemptions apply – check with us if you are not sure).

    If you are enrolled at a secondary school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through the Victorian Training Guarantee, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with our Student Administration department.

    You are also required to:

    • obtain a USI (Unique Student Identifier) prior to enrolment as part of your eligibility for a government-subsidised place.
    • show evidence of your citizenship/residency and age at enrolment. This can include one of the following (original or certified copy required, plus an additional photocopy to submit):
      • a current green Medicare card
      • an Australian birth certificate (not birth extract)
      • a current Australian passport
      • a current New Zealand passport
      • a naturalisation certificate (Australian citizenship certificate)
      • formal papers from DIBP confirming permanent residence.
        If you are under 20 proof of age must also be presented, if not included in one of the above documents.

    You can also check what you may be eligible for using the interactive Victorian Skills Gateway Eligibility Indicator.
