Free TAFE for lots of jobs

Free TAFE for Priority Courses will give more Victorians the chance to study at TAFE.

More than ever, the skills we need to build our state are learned at TAFE.

Free TAFE for Priority Courses will reduce the financial barrier for students wanting to train in courses that lead to jobs – in demand from Victorian employers.

From 1 January 2019, Free TAFE for Priority Courses pays tuition fees for priority courses for students who are eligible for government-subsidised training. This includes:

An initial 20 priority non apprenticeship courses, state-wide – a further 10 priority courses will be confirmed following consultation with industry, in time for students to enrol for the 2019 training year

18 Victorian Government-subsidised apprenticeship pathway courses (sometimes called pre apprenticeships)

TAFEs may take enrolments in 2018 for Free TAFE for Priority Courses that begin in 2019.
