Explore our Free TAFE Pathway

There are now more opportunities to increase your employment options with the Free TAFE priority pathways initiative. 

The Victorian government is giving eligible individuals who want to start a new career, upgrade their skills or re-enter the workforce, the chance to now complete multiple fee-free courses.

With the Free TAFE priority pathways program, you can progress from a certificate to a diploma within the same study area without paying for each individual course.


To qualify for the Free TAFE Pathways program, you must:

  • Be an Australian citizen/permanent resident or New Zealand citizen
  • Have completed a previous Free TAFE Pathway course and wish to continue in the same pathway
  • Have previously accessed Free TAFE, including non-pathway courses, and hold a qualification that is part of a Free TAFE pathway and wish to continue in the same pathway. It does not matter if the previous qualification was obtained through government-subsidized or fee-for-service training
  • Have received a Free TAFE fee waiver through JobTrainer and wish to enroll in another Free TAFE course, either in a pathway program or one additional non-pathway program.
