More than ever, the skills we need to build our state are learned at TAFE and Free TAFE for Priority Courses will give more Victorians the chance to study.
This initiative will reduce financial barriers for students wanting to train in courses that lead to jobs in-demand by Victorian employers.
From 1 January 2019, Free TAFE for Priority Courses will cover tuition fees for students who are eligible for government-subsidised training.
Free Priority TAFE courses
The free priority course list includes 20 non-apprenticeship courses and 18 courses that provide pathways to apprenticeships, also known as pre-apprenticeships.
Free priority courses lead to occupations in industries where there are likely to be more jobs.
Some of them lead to work in important areas like preventing family violence, rolling out the National Disability Insurance Scheme and delivering our major infrastructure projects.
Students who are eligible for the Free TAFE for Priority Courses initiative can study in one of the following courses at Kangan Institute in 2019:
