Subsidised Training
The Victoria Training Guarantee.

Vocational education and training is a great way to gain a Nationally Recognised Qualification that will improve your ability to enter the workforce or enhance your career or job prospects.

The Victorian Training Guarantee is making training more accessible to people who do not have a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold.

The Victorian Training Guarantee entitles eligible students to a government subsidised place through one of Victoria’s many Accredited Training Institutes or private Registered Training Organisations.

Am I eligible for the Victorian Training Guarantee?
In 2014 you are eligible for a government subsidised training place if you:

 • Meet one of the following citizen/residency status:
    - Australian citizen
    - Holder of a Permanent Visa
    - An Asylum Seeker
    - Victim of Human Trafficking
    - Holder of a Temporary Protection Visa.

 • Are any of the following:
    - A young person under 20 years (as at 1/1/2014)
    - An applicant seeking a higher qualification than the highest
      qualification already held in Australia
    - You have not enrolled in more than TWO Victorian
      Government Subsidised courses in 2014 or currently
      undertaking more than two courses.

 • Have not enrolled in or currently undertaking more than TWO     Victorian Government Subsidised course/s in 2014

NOTE: Training places are subject to admission requirements and availability.

What are the fees?
In 2014, the Victorian Government will help cover the cost of training in a government subsidised place. You may still be required to cover some of the cost by paying tuition fees.

Can you get assistance with paying fees?
Concessions are available for study at Certificate I to IV levels for Health Care Card holders studying in a government subsidised place.

Am I eligible?
Students must meet citizenship and other eligibility requirements for any government subsidised training at any course level.

What if I want to study but don't meet eligibility?
You can still study at your choice of training provider if places are available, but you may not be able to access a government subsidised tuition fee.
