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).

We're currently accepting applications for our next available intake. See the list of Free TAFE courses we offer and apply today.
