What is Free TAFE?


What is Free TAFE?

The free TAFE Priority Courses initiative aims to reduce the financial barrier for students wanting to train in courses that lead to priority occupations – those in demand from employers in the Victorian economy.

Free TAFE for Priority Courses is a Victoria Government initiative that will pay a student’s tuition fees if eligible, to study one of the priority courses at TAFE.

From 1 January 2020, students who are eligible for Victorian Government- subsidised training will not pay course tuition fees for a range of: 

  • Priority non-apprenticeship courses, state-wide 
  • Victorian Government-subsidised apprenticeship pathway courses (sometimes called pre-apprenticeships).
To see the full list of available Free TAFE for Priority courses, visit freetafe.vic.give.au.

Free TAFE for priority Courses commenced on 1 January 2019.
