Skills for All boosts the number of training places in SA
Skills for All is a South Australian Government initiative that will change the way vocational education and training is funded in the state. The Government has committed funding to help support additional training places giving many South Australians the opportunity to gain more qualifications, many at low or no cost, through approved 'Skills for All' training providers.
Eligible individuals will be able to access subsidised training from July 2012.
An individual will need to meet course entry requirements and verify their eligibility with the approved training provider of their choice before being enrolled in government subsidised training.
Qualifications at Certificate level I and II will be fully subsidised, which means there are no tuition fees. Qualifications at Certificate III level and above will be partially government-subsidised and students will be expected to pay a tuition fee as well as any relevant incidental fees.
Subsidised training list
The Subsidised Training List shows the courses available to eligible South Australians. It will be necessary to check with an approved ‘Skills for All’ training provider about the courses that are available through them. Enrolment can be in more than one course with more than one provider at the same time.
‘Skills for All’ training providers will only be allowed to charge a tuition fee (Certificate III and above) within the set minimum and maximum range, for any given course. This means that different training providers may charge a different tuition fee for the same course. ‘Skills for All’ training providers are required to publish their tuition fees.
