Free TAFE for Priority Courses
Certain courses Swinburne offers through VTAC are part of the Free TAFE for Priority Courses program. This Victorian government initiative allows students that have received an offer for one of these courses, and are eligible for government-subsidised training, to study the course free of tuition fees.
If you received an offer for one of these courses listed in the Free TAFE for Priority Courses Initiative, you may be eligible provided you:
- have not accessed the initiative before OR
- are continuing a free TAFE course you started at another eligible institution.
Eligible students can access this initiative for one free course only, so consider your training choice carefully. Please visit our website if you would like to know more about Free TAFE for Priority Courses at Swinburne. Confirmation of your eligibility will be provided once we have processed your pre-enrolment information.
Certain courses Swinburne offers through VTAC are part of the JobTrainer program. This federal and state government initiative allows students that have received an offer for one of these courses, and are eligible for government-subsidised training, to study the course either free of tuition fee or at a reduced cost, depending on your course.
If you have received an offer for one of these courses listed in the JobTrainer Initiative, you may be eligible provided you are:
- 17 to 24 years old when the course starts; or
- a job seeker of any age, where a job seeker is defined as a person who: holds a valid and current Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Veteran’s Gold Card; or is unemployed.
You must not have commenced a full qualification under JobTrainer before. You can commence only one qualification and one skill set under JobTrainer, even if you don't complete your course, so consider your training choices carefully. Confirmation of your eligibility will be provided once we have processed your pre-enrolment information.
Verify your identity - GreenID
We use VixVerify – GreenID to verify your identity. If you’ve completed this step before commencing the pre-enrolment process, you need only enter the GreenID when requested. If you are yet to complete this, simply gather your identification documents and follow the prompts to obtain your GreenID.
Unique Student Identifier
This reference number is a government requirement for all students doing a nationally recognised course. It creates a secure online record of your training and qualifications. We recommend obtaining a USI now as you will not be able to enrol in your units until you provide one. If you don’t have a USI, get one now.
Language, literacy and numeracy
The government requires us to evaluate your language, literacy and numeracy levels. This helps us to support you in your course selection, and to identify any assistance you might require.
Important: If you have recently completed VCE you may not need to perform this step. Follow the prompts when asked about the study you have completed, and you will be advised about any additional requirements.
TIP! If you are required to complete any component of the language, literacy and numeracy evaluation, the password you use in this section is the word swinburne. This system uses a generic password for everyone, not the personal password you created with your student ID.
10. Then click 'Submit Application'
TIP! If you log out, or the system times out, before you have finalised and submitted all of your information, the screen you will see when logging back in to the system will be ‘Personal Details’. From here, use the tab at the top left of the screen for ‘My Applications’ to return to the pre-enrolment steps. If you do not have any information saved from your previous attempt, click on ‘Add New’ and recommence the process, otherwise click on ‘Resume’ to return the place you last saved.
