A focus on industry and government priorities
The funded course list focuses on current and future workforce industry skills. Previously, any course that was nationally accredited was available for subsidised training under the Victorian Training Guarantee.
Courses included on the funded course list will: better align with industry needs and workforce demands, have a strong jobs outcome, such as apprenticeships, meet other social needs, such as foundation skill courses.
The funded courses list is regularly reviewed, and courses added as required by industry needs.
