Smart & Skilled - NSW Government Funded Training

AVIT- Smart & Skilled Training Course

AIVT’s Smart and Skilled – NSW Government Funding Initiative for Training
This training is subsidised by the NSW Government

What is Smart & Skilled?

Smart and Skilled is a reform of the NSW Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. It’s helping people in NSW get the skills they need to find a job and advance their careers.

From 1 January 2015, Smart and Skilled provides eligible learners with:

  • an entitlement to government-subsidised training up to and including Certificate III
  • government funding for higher-level courses (Certificate IV and above) in targeted priority areas.
  • From 2015, Smart and Skilled introduces new prices and fee arrangements for government-subsidised courses.
  • The NSW Government contributes to the cost of each course and the learner pays the balance. Fees are for the whole course, rather than year-by-year. Fee exemptions and concessions are also available for disadvantaged learners.

Am I eligible for Smart & Skilled training?

Are you:

  • 15 years old or over?
  • no longer at school?
  • living or working in NSW?
  • an Australian citizen; or
  • a permanent Australian resident; or
  • a humanitarian visa holder; or
  • a New Zealand citizen?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to all four questions, then you’re eligible to enrol in a government-subsidised course with an approved Smart and Skilled training provider.

Types of courses you’re eligible for

Your eligibility for a government-subsidised Smart and Skilled course depends on your previous qualifications:

  • If you haven not completed a Certificate IV or higher-level qualification, you’re entitled to enrol in a subsidised course up to Certificate III
  • You can enrol in subsidised training at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level, depending on the availability of funding for these courses. Having completed a Certificate IV or higher-level qualification does not affect eligibility
