In January 2017, Victoria’s training and TAFE system was overhauled. A new approach to training was implemented, setting a high benchmark for training quality, and supporting the courses that are most likely to lead to employment.
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.
To be eligible for a Government subsidised place, you must meet the eligibility requirements of the Skills First Program which include citizenship/residency requirements, age, prior qualifications completed and the number of government subsidised courses commenced within a calendar year.
