In 2021, the Victorian Government introduced a new accredited short course (skill set) offering under Skills First. Skill sets can only be delivered by Skills First contracted training providers. Extra skill sets may be added in line with existing Funded Course List processes. For more information, see the Skills First Skill Sets policy

Subsidies that reflect the real costs of training

The Funded Course List only includes courses and skill sets that:

  • align with industry needs and workforce demands
  • represent government priorities, including rolling out the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), responding to family violence, and completing Victoria’s infrastructure projects
  • have strong job outcomes, such as apprenticeships
  • meet other social needs, such as foundation skill courses
  • supports initiatives such as Free TAFE for Priority Courses.

Jobs and training needs

The 2022 Funded Course List has been used to create regional jobs and training needs reports​

These reports will assist training providers to better align their proposed delivery in 2022 with the stated objectives of Skills First.

The Funded Course List is regularly reviewed, and courses added as required by industry needs, to support jobs growth. This allows the training market to keep up with the changing needs of the economy.​
