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:

Under 20 or upskilling

  • Aged under 20 (regardless of any other qualifications they might hold); or
  • 20 years of age or older and enrolling in a course that is a higher qualification than the highest qualification you’ve previously attained  

A Victorian who needs additional support

  • Unemployed and clients of the Jobs Victoria Employment Network
  • Retrenched workers
  • Automotive supply chain workers

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.
