Free TAFE for priority courses will give more Victorians the chance to study at TAFE. More than ever, the skills we need to build our state are learned at TAFE.

Free TAFE for priority courses will reduce the financial barrier for students wanting to train in courses that lead to jobs in demand from Victorian employers. 

The investment of $172 million will make 40 priority TAFE courses and 20 pre apprenticeship courses in these growth industries free.

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

  • 40 priority non apprenticeship courses
  • 20 Victorian apprenticeship pathway courses (sometimes called pre apprenticeships)
