Eligibility for Free TAFE for Priority Courses

Under 20 or upskilling
- are aged under 20 (regardless of any other qualifications they might hold); or
- are 20 or older and enrolling in a course that is a higher qualification than the highest qualification previously attained.
Victorians who need additional support
Victorians who are:
- unemployed and clients of the Jobs Victoria Employment Network;
- retrenched workers; or
- 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.

Eligible students can access this initiative only once, even if you do not complete your priority course, so you need to consider your training choice carefully.
