Cost should never stop someone from learning new skills. To break down that barrier and make sure every Victorian has the opportunity to train and get a good job.
The Victorian Budget 2018/19 includes investments to:
$172 million to make TAFE free for 30 priority courses. These quality courses will focus on the skills we need – building infrastructure projects, responding to family violence, and caring for older Victorians or people living with disability.
$304 million to train more Victorians.
$120 million to upgrade and modernise 3 TAFE facilities in regional Victoria.
$44 million to modernise apprenticeships, including the introduction of independent assessments, updated learning materials and the reintroduction of trade papers.
