The Victorian Government will cover tuition fees for 30 priority TAFE courses and 20 pre-apprenticeship courses from 1 January 2019 for eligible students.
The Free TAFE Priority Courses means thousands of students have the chance to study and gain valuable qualifications where the demand for skilled workers is strongest.
More than ever, the skills required for high-demand jobs in these growing sectors are learned at TAFE, and Free TAFE removes the financial barrier for students wanting to undertake quality, accredited TAFE training.
Free TAFE courses provide the skills needed for industries with in-demand jobs, including:
- community services
- disability services
- hospitality and tourism
- professional services.
Victorian TAFE providers are now taking enrolments for these priority courses.

It is important to know that eligibility criteria apply, and other fees and charges, such as student services fees or materials fees, may also apply. Students can check their eligibility by calling the TAFE and Training Line on 131 823.
