Free TAFE Courses

More than ever, the skills we need to build our region and our state are learned at TAFE. The Free TAFE for Priority Courses reduce the financial barrier for students wanting to train in courses that lead to jobs in demand from Victorian employers. From 1 January 2019, Free TAFE for Priority Courses covers tuition fees for priority courses for students who are eligible for government-subsidised training. This includes:

  • 30 priority non apprenticeship courses
  • 20 Victorian apprenticeship pathway courses (sometimes called pre apprenticeships)
Free TAFE courses lead to occupations in industries where there are likely to be more jobs and possibilities for career progression into the future.
