Skills First Funding

Victorian Government subsidised training scheme - Skills First Program

Skills First is a set of reforms for the training and TAFE sector. The reforms ensure that Victoria's training and TAFE system delivers high quality training that leads learners to real jobs. 

Skills First is made up of:

  • high-quality training that students and industry can trust, aligned to industry and workforce needs
  • a real voice for industry in training
  • funding for high-needs learners who need additional support to engage with and succeed in education and training
  • access to targeted, relevant training for students in regional areas. 

Supporting quality providers

Private providers are focusing their business plans on delivering great training rather than worrying about poor quality, low cost competitors and their bottom line. Quality providers can compete to meet the needs of students, industry and the economy.

Funding subsidies reflect the real cost of qualifications and ensure high quality training is meeting the needs of industry and employers. Contracts are ensuring that public funds are well spent, therefore an eligibility criteria must be met.

This is subsidised training - the funding is NOT a loan.
