Free TAFE for priority courses in Victoria

The Victorian Government's Free TAFE for priority courses is an opportunity for eligible students to study with greater convenience and peace-of-mind. If eligible, you will not pay course tuition fees for a free government course.

Free TAFE is designed to reduce the financial barrier for students wanting to train in courses that have a clear pathway to in-demand occupations in the Victorian economy.

We offer Free TAFE courses across nine study areas at Holmesglen - at a pre-apprenticeship, certificate, diploma or advanced diploma qualification level. These include non-apprenticeship courses and courses that provide pathways to apprenticeships (also called pre-apprenticeships).

Free TAFE courses eligibility

If you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident; or a New Zealand citizen, you may be eligible to study a Free TAFE course in Victoria. You can access a Free TAFE course, if you are:

Victorian Residency

  • Physically present in the State of Victoria at all times at which you are undertaking the training and assessment.  

A Victorian who needs additional support

  • Unemployed and clients of the Jobs Victoria Employment Network

Looking to change careers

Victorians who want to reskill, change careers, improve their employment prospects and/or meet the needs of local industries*.

*Subject to availability of TAFE places, and prioritised based on need.

You can access this free training initiative only once – even if you do not finish your chosen Free TAFE priority course.  So, it is important that you consider your free training choice carefully.  From 2023, students may be eligible to complete more than one Free TAFE course, if you are enrolling in a course that’s included in the Free TAFE Pathways initiative.
