Subsidised Training and Qualifications

Government subsidised training means that, if you are eligible and there is a subsidised place available, the government will pay a part of the student fee on your behalf, with you paying the balance. There are also some courses which are fully subsidised (no cost to you), including fee-free apprenticeships.

Browse through the below list of NSW Government subsidised courses offered at TAFE NSW, to find one that can help you to be whatever you want to be.

“There are only eight people in my class and the teachers are just amazing. They’re like mentors and very one-on-one with their teaching. You’re treated like an adult and you’re in charge of your own learning.”

— Gabby Andrews studied a Certificate IV in Tertiary Preparation, and will now graduate with the equivalent of an ATAR and her Year 12 qualification in one year instead of two.
