NSW Smart and Skilled Traineeships

What is Smart & Skilled?

Smart and Skilled is a reform of the NSW Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. It's helping people in NSW get the skills they need to find a job and advance their careers.

Smart and Skilled provides eligible students with:

  • an entitlement to government-subsidised training up to and including Certificate III
  • government funding for higher-level courses (Certificate IV and above) in targeted priority areas.

Fee Free Training – NSW Smart & Skilled Traineeships

Under the NSW Government's Fee-Free Traineeship Initiative, NSW Trainees who are funded under Smart and Skilled, and commence subsidised training on or after 1 January 2020, are eligible for free training!

Payment Plans
