Funded Course List 2023

Download the Funded Course List - 2023 (XLSX)External Link - This includes a filter for full qualifications, and for skill sets (the Funded Skill Set List).

The Funded Course List only includes courses and skill sets that:

  • align with industry needs and workforce demands
  • represent government priorities, including rolling out the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), responding to family violence, and completing Victoria's infrastructure projects
  • have strong job outcomes, such as apprenticeships
  • meet other social needs, such as foundation skill courses

The Funded Course List is regularly reviewed, and courses added as required by industry needs, to support jobs growth. This allows the training market to keep up with the changing needs of the economy.

Funded courses and skill sets can only be delivered by Skills First contracted training providers.

For a list of all funded course and skill set codes and 2023 subsidies, visit the Funded Programs Report in the Skills Victoria Training System.
