Am I eligible for a government-subsidised training place?

Generally, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place if you are:

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
  • a New Zealand citizen

and are any of the following:

  • under 20 years of age
  • seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are receiving core skills training in other sectors)
  • seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
  • seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
  • 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification.

If you are enrolled at a school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through the Skills First Program, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with your school.


How many courses am I eligible for?

You are eligible to commence a maximum of two subsidised programs at the same qualification level in your lifetime. This restriction applies whether or not you complete the program. For example, this means if you have already commenced two programs at the Certificate III level, you may only commence programs at the Certificate IV level (or above).
If you are enrolling in MediQuest Foundation Skills program, you are eligible to enrol in 4 programs in a year and to be training in 2 programs at any one time. At the time of your enrolment, you will be informed of the impact of the enrolment on your future funding eligibility.
MediQuest must inform you that if you are enrolled in a skills first funded program you may:
  • receive an NCVER survey
  • receive an invitation to participate in a Department endorsed project
  • receive an invitation to participate in the Department’s annual student outcome survey
  • be contacted by the Department for audit, review or investigation purposes
