Government-subsidised places

Some of our courses have places subsidised by funding from the Victorian and Commonwealth governments through the Victorian Training Guarantee. For government-subsidised places, subsidies apply only to the tuition part of the fee.

How to determine eligibility

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 on 1 January of the year in which you will commence your course
  • seeking to enrol in an Approved Foundation Skills course
  • 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

From 1 July 2012, Victorians of any age whose existing highest qualification is VCE or VCAL are eligible for a government-subsidised training place in a qualification at Certificate II or above.

Please see the Eligibility flow chart under Related documents on the right side of this page for further information.

 

Concession card holders

For enrolments in courses at the Certificate IV level and below, you are eligible for a concession on your tuition fees if you meet the eligibility criteria above and, prior to the commencement of training, you hold a current and valid:

  1. Commonwealth Health Care Card;
  2. Pensioner Concession Card; or
  3. Veteran’s Gold Card.

If you are a dependant of a Commonwealth Health Care Card or a Pensioner Concession Card holder, you are also eligible for a concession on your tuition fees.
