Free TAFE

More Victorians will have the chance to study at TAFE, with Free TAFE

More than ever, the skills we need to build our state are learned at TAFE. Free TAFE will reduce financial barriers for students wanting to train in courses that lead to jobs in demand by Victorian employers. 

From 1 January 2019, Free TAFE for Priority Courses covers tuition fees for priority courses, for students who are eligible for government-subsidised training.


Priority TAFE courses

  • The free priority course list includes non-apprenticeship courses and courses that provide pathways to apprenticeships (also known as ‘pre-apprenticeships’).
  • Free priority courses lead to occupations in industries where there are likely to be more available jobs.
  • Some of them lead to work in important areas like preventing family violence, rolling out the National Disability Insurance Scheme in Victoria, and delivering our major infrastructure projects.
