Am I Eligible?

From January 1 2015 the NSW Government is changing the way Vocational Education and Training is funded. This reform is called Smart & Skilled.

As part of these changes, the NSW Government has released the 2017 Skills List which sets out priority areas for training. This means that if you choose to study a qualification that is included on this list, based on meeting eligibility criteria, some of the course fees may be covered by the Government.

Take a look below and see if you meet the eligibility criteria.
