Free TAFE for priority courses in Victoria


The Victorian Government's new Free TAFE for priority courses is an opportunity for eligible students to study with greater convenience and peace-of-mind in 2019. If eligible, you will not pay course tuition fees for a free government course.

The Free TAFE for priority courses are 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. The Free TAFE course list includes 30 priority non apprenticeship courses and 20 courses that provide pathways to apprenticeships (sometimes called pre-apprenticeships).

We offer
Free TAFE courses across nine study areas at Holmesglen - at a pre-apprenticeship, certificate, diploma or advanced diploma qualification level. We're currently accepting applications for Free TAFE for priority courses.
