Fully subsidised courses

You can study a fully government subsidised course at Sydney TAFE, which means the government will pay your fees for you.

Provided you meet the eligibility criteria, you can study one of the courses listed on this page without paying any course tuition fees.

These courses are part of a Smart and Skilled program called ‘Targeted Priorities Prevocational and Part Qualifications’ and aim to help you develop the skills you need to get a job, undertake entry level qualifications or transition to a new career.

Get a taste of a trade, an advantage in your apprenticeship or traineeship, or a career head-start. And when you’ve completed your course, you may even be able to get credit towards a full qualification if you continue on that pathway.
