Funding Assistance for Local Students

You may be eligible for a government-subsidised place in this course under the Victorian Training Guarantee (VTG).

If you are eligible the government will contribute to the cost of your training.

A Registered Training Organisation (RTO) can confirm your eligibility for funding assistance for a specific course. For an indication of your eligibility, you can use the Skills First Gate Way VTG Eligibility Indicator.

Am I eligible for a government-subsidised training place?

Generally, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place if you are:

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
  • a New Zealand citizen

 are any of the following:

  • under 20 years of age
  • seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are receiving core skills training in other sectors)
  • seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
  • seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
  • 20 years and older and ‘up skilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification.

If you are enrolled at a school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through the Victorian Training Guarantee, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with your school.
