Smart and Skilled (NSW only)

  • Smart and Skilled provides eligible people in NSW 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.

  • 15 years old or over
  • No longer at school
  • Living or working in NSW
  • An Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, Australian permanent humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen

Your eligibility for a government-subsidised Smart and Skilled course may depend on any previously completed qualifications.
